Addison Oktoberfest has been recognized as one of the most authentic Oktoberfest celebrations outside of Munich for over three decades. This year, approximately 50,000 fans will come together September 16-19, 2021, to share a love of polka, German food and, of course, the same Paulaner Bier that would traditionally be served at Bavaria’s favorite festival.
Hotel and ticket pakets – no, that’s not a misspelling; it’s the German word for packages – run $20 and up, and include lots of extras.
· Hotelpaket (Starting at $89) – Make an Oktoberfest weekend of it for less than the price of your Uber: Book an Addison Oktoberfest Hotelpaket, which includes lodging and festival fun; two single-day general admission tickets, two .5 liter commemorative steins, two bier vouchers, and 2 souvenir pins. The festival items alone have a $62 value!
· Addison Oktoberfest Paket ($40) – For adults 21 and older, this paket includes single-day general admission, a commemorative .5 liter stein, two Paulaner bier vouchers, a commemorative hat pin and an Oktoberfest T-shirt. A $54 value.
· Kinderpaket ($20) – For children ages 9 and under, this paket includes one Addison Oktoberfest light up mug, an exclusive souvenir button, a youth Oktoberfest hat and a youth Addison Oktoberfest shirt. A $28 value.
