Top Jazz Festivals in the USAMainStrasse Village’s Oktoberfest

early September – Covington, Kentucky

Top Oktoberfest events in the USA Named as one of Southeast Tourism Society’s “Top 20 Festivals" , MaintStrasse Village's Oktoberfest invites families and travelers from throughout the world.

In the 1940s when Colonel Sanders created his secret recipe for fried chicken in Corbin little did he know that it would become world famous and that a festival would be created to celebrate fried chicken.





A great mix of German and international foods, music and arts and crafts attracts approximately 125,000 people to this popular festival in historic MainStrasse Village, Covington, Kentucky.

Covington, which is nestled along the south shore of the Ohio River, has much to offer the visitor. The Behringer-Crawford Museum in Devou Park brings the history of this river town to life with its many interactive exhibits. The Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption which is open to the public is one of only 35 minor basilicas in the United States. You can also enjoy the 704-acre Devou Park and two public golf courses.

The festival extends over 6 city blocks, along the tree lined 6th Street Promenade, Philadelphia Street, Main Street and Goebel Park, creating the perfect backdrop for the variety of appealing foods, drinks and works by over 75 artisans and crafters from all over the country. We will have traditional German food as always and of course, a variety of other festival favorites.
Be sure to visit the Kinderplatz, full of adventures and rides for the kids and the Amusement Midway filled with fun for the "older" kids. And don't miss the Main Street Bier Garten where you can relax, enjoy the music at the Main Street Stage and visit the unique shops and restaurants that line Main Street.
And don’t forget the music! Quality live entertainment by top local performers will spread the festival mood throughout Oktoberfest. Great Pop, Classic Rock, Blues, Country and German will be featured at the Festival Stage, the Main Street Stage, the Goose Girl Stage and the Goebel Park Stage. Whatever your musical style, you’re sure to enjoy the variety that Oktoberfest offers.


Directions: MainStrasse Village is conveniently located just across the river from Cincinnati, Ohio in Covington, Kentucky. Take I-75/71, take the Covington Fifth Street Exit (Exit 192 and follow the signs to the Village).
