The City of Cullman, Alabama was founded by, and named after, a German immigrant, Johann Cullmann. The residents of Cullman and the surrounding area are very proud of their German heritage, so it isn’t surprising that every year Cullman Oktoberfest is easily considered the areas largest and most anticipated event of the year.
Each year, during the first week in October, senior citizens and school children alike come together to enjoy Oktoberfest activities such as: a wiener dog race, an arts and crafts show, wagon rides, a kids’ fun area, multiple stage events, a Biergarten, a classic car show, featuring German cars, numerous contests, Historical tours, a quilt show and much, much more. Over the years, events and sponsors change, but one thing remain constant: we will always take pride in celebrating Cullman’s German heritage.
Established in 1982, Cullman Oktoberfest is a non-profit organization, staffed by volunteers, whose goal is to provide a family-friendly event for the citizens of Cullman County and surrounding areas. With support from the community, we will continue to provide outstanding entertainment and proudly promote the City of Cullman to Oktoberfest attendees.
As we plan for 2015 and upcoming years, events and sponsors may change, but we still remain true to our mission: to celebrate the great German Heritage found in the residents of Cullman, Alabama. Come join us!
Most events are free… some things will require reservations and a ticket… see the website.
