Celebrate Oktoberfest at Ober Gatlinburg September 25th through November 1st!

oktoberfest-at-ober-heysmokiesCelebrate Oktoberfest at Ober Gatlinburg from September 25th through November 1st, 2015!

It’s all things Bavarian at Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort and Amusement Park during their Annual Oktoberfest bash as they honor the heritage and traditions that began in Munich, Germany long ago.

Enjoy a scenic ride to the top of Ski Mountain via Ober’s Aerial Tramway for all the daily Oktoberfest fun and outdoor games. You can drive up to the top; however, we highly recommend boarding the iconic, green gondolas for one-of-a-kind views of the Smoky Mountains and the town of Gatlinburg.

Every day during the festival, the whole family can enjoy a great meal of authentic German sausages, schnitzels, strudels and more! And there will be live entertainment by the Bavarian Fun Makers Oompah Band. Showtimes are at 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 1:00 p.m., 3:00 p.m., 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Sing and dance along and give us your best yodel! Seating is 30 minutes prior to showtime.

Raise a mug and toast friends and family, who are 21 years and older, at the Outdoor Bier Garten Thursday through Sunday during Oktoberfest! Ober Gatlinburg is offering a special selection of Oktoberfest ales and German wines during the celebration.

Grab your lederhosen and have some fun Bavarian-style at Ober Gatlinburg this season! Be sure to check out their brand-new Ski Mountain Coaster and Wildlife Encounter exhibit. And be sure to make time to enjoy Ober’s tried-and-true favorites like the Alpine Slide, indoor Ice Skating Rink, and Scenic Chairlift.
