Dayton Oktoberfest

456 Belmonte Park North
Dayton, OH 45401

Oktoberfest returns for its 50th anniversary in 2021, taking place September 24-26 on the museum grounds!

A Dayton tradition established in 1971, Oktoberfest is the museum’s largest annual fundraiser and vital to everything we do at the Dayton Art Institute. Presented by Miller Lite, the annual three-day fall festival takes place the fourth full weekend of September. Oktoberfest celebrates 50 years in 2021, and we’re inviting the public to submit their Oktoberfest photos for possible inclusion in a 50th anniversary photo gallery.
