Yes, following the tradition of the Oktoberfest in Munich, Fort Worth Oktoberfest has multiple tents and biergartens for
festival goers to enjoy.

Spaten Halle – The largest of the bierhalles, this tent is air-conditioned and seats over 900 people at traditional German biergarten tables. Enjoy live music all day from your favorite Oktoberfest bands and a large dance floor. This is where we will tap the first keg, hold the Dachshund Costume Contest and nightly Masskrugstemmen “bier-stein holding” contests.

Van Zandt Zelt – Step into this large open-air tent to enjoy live Oktoberfest music all day and a large dance floor. Open seating available to sit, enjoy your biers and all the fun! Masskrugstemmen “bier-stein holding” contests held nightly.

Karbach Biergarten – Located in a tree grove of some of Trinity Parks oldest trees, this is a laid-back area to drink your biers at German biergarten tables and enjoy live music. Big Jenga and Corn Hole games offer fun for all.

Food Haus – Stop in the Food Haus to pick up one of your German favorites. Seating available to enjoy your grub and bier. Check out the Food und Bier page for all the offerings.
