Celebrating Fall During Ober Gatlinburg’s 8th Annual Oktoberfest September 22, – October 29, 2017

Ober Gatlinburg Oktoberfest is a delicious day of fun for the whole family!

Celebrating Fall During Ober Gatlinburg’s 8th Annual Oktoberfest September 22, – October 29, 2017 will be a “beery” good time! Take an amazing scenic ride to the summit of Ski Mountain via Ober’s Ariel Tramway to find all the daily outdoor games and fun at Oktoberfest. A short drive will bring you to the top but riding the famous, green gondolas for an amazing view of Mount LeConte, the Smoky Mountains and the hamlet of Gatlinburg can’t be beat.

The whole family will love the authentic German food offered at Ober. Take your

Those 21 and over can wash down the schnitzel with a frothy beer from the Outdoor Bier Garden. Each weekend will have a featured brewery and Saturdays will have a featured brewery representative on hand to share a brewmeister secret or two. The Bier Garden will be open daily Noon till 6:00 p.m. and Noon till 7:00  on Saturdays.

The Bavarian Fun Makers Oompah Band will raise your spirits while you raise your glasses! The band dresses in authentic lederhosen while performing traditional Bavarian folk dances, oompah music, sing-a-longs, yodels, and more!
