The date has been set for Oktoberfest 2018 in Hays! Make plans to book your hotel rooms early for the weekend of September 28, 2018 to enjoy Oktoberfest and Fort Hays State University Homecoming!
For 46 years the Volga German Society has celebrated German history, heritage, and homecoming at the annual Oktoberfest. Municipal Park will be filled with the sound of Polka music, the smell of traditional bierocks and brats, and plenty of beer. Held in conjunction with Fort Hays State University's Homecoming, Friday and Saturday are days you absolutely have to experience to understand why people travel to Hays every fall for Oktoberfest.
