Little Rocktoberfest- Little Rock’s Premier Oktoberfest Celebration

Oktoberfest is a celebration that takes place every fall in Munich, Germany. It pays homage to all things German, the food, the costumes, the customs, and especially, the beer. People come from all over the world to participate.

Unfortunately, not everyone can make it out to Germany for Oktoberfest. That’s why cities throughout the globe celebrate Oktoberfest in their own way.

Little Rock is a great example. This Arkansas city hosts a Little Rocktoberfest that you can’t afford to miss. Read on to find out what’s involved.
