OKTOBERFEST USA German heritage runs deep in many places throughout Wisconsin, and it's on full display each fall in the Mississippi River town of La Crosse, home to Oktoberfest USA. This festival, held each year since 1961, is consistently ranked among the top events of its kind in the United States thanks to the organizers' focus on maintaining the German traditions of Oktoberfest. Like any good German festival, Oktoberfest USA offers plenty of opportunities for beer tasting. Among the many activities on the docket is a craft beer night that features 50 craft brewers hand- ing out samples in a large tent. Festivalgoers will find lots of beer available in other areas throughout the entire festival. In addition to the beer, Oktoberfest USA has a wide-ranging lineup of entertainment options. There are multiple parades, pag- eants, themed dinners and musical entertainment. Carnival rides and craft vendors round out the celebration. This year's festival will be held September 28 to October 1.
