From day one the Schmidt family of Schmidt’s Restaurant und Sausage Haus has been a part of presenting this great festival. This makes the Columbus Oktoberfest unique in that it is the only Central Ohio Festival produced by a family business versus a city or major corporate entity. This community festival has been brewing up and serving smiles for 55 years. There truly is something for everyone. Tasty food, lively music, bountiful brews, and games galore. The Columbus Oktoberfest has it all. Bier Halls with ample dance floors, a delightful Wine Garten, a giant Kinderplatz (Children’s area) in the beautiful Natural Resources park, an eclectic Marktplatz (arts/crafts, commercial area), a full entertainment line up on three stages, a Vier Meiler (4 miler run/walk event) and of course delicious brats, cream puffs and all the other traditional items you expect.
