The Oktoberfestival Procession

Join us on Friday, September 17th for the annual Duluth Oktoberfestival Procession! The procession is essentially a mini-parade and includes authentic live music, a Golden Keg-Tapping Ceremony, the official Festmaster and Frau reveal, and the March of the Dachshund Pups. Spectators are encouraged to join in on the fun as we loop around Canal Park on our way towards Bayfront Festival Park where the Festmaster and Frau will tap the Golden Keg, marking the official opening of the 2021 Duluth Oktoberfestival. So grab your friends, don your best German attire, and join us for a procession to remember!
