Celebrate Oktoberfest, head to a night market or enjoy wine samples while shopping from local vendors this weekend.
"St. Louis’ heritage is very diverse among European immigration, but no group has positively impacted the community quite like the great German brewing families that settled here in the mid-19th century. It is appropriate that St. Louis and Soulard celebrate this great heritage through Soulard Oktoberfest. Home to the Anheuser-Busch Brewery, Soulard is the perfect location for this festival. Through the celebration of Oktoberfest in Soulard, we are ensuring the continued appreciation of the St. Louis German brewing culture." Free admission with add-ons available. Friday from 4 to 11pm and Saturday from 11am to 10pm.
