WELCOME TO THE 35th ANNUAL HICKORY OKTOBERFEST!

We have made the difficult decision to cancel Hickory’s Oktoberfest this year. Stay tuned for updates on the 2021 festival!

Hickory, NC is proud to host Oktoberfest each year during the second weekend of October. Having been co-founded by a German, Adolphus “Dolph” Shuford, Hickory has a long, proud German heritage. Home to the United States headquarters for several German companies, and being a sister city with in Altenburg, Germany, our connection to Germany, has never left us.
