Global Virtual Oktoberfest Fun Run & Oktoberfest Celebration

October 3 - 17, 2020

The Oktoberfest in Munich is cancelled, but the spirit of Oktoberfest continues whether you’re in München or Manhattan, Miami, Milan or Macau! Celebrate German culture and heritage with a VIRTUAL FUN RUN and an in-person or (virtual) keg ceremony and celebration!

Germans and Germany-fans, competitive and leisure runners, in jerseys, Lederhosen or Dirndl, Oktoberfestlers, families, corporate teams and small business owners come together to celebrate the famous German Oktoberfest tradition - together and across the world - because in 2020, we physically separate and find unity in virtual events.

Run or walk your 1k, 5k, 10k or 100k between October 3 - October 15, 2020. Cook a German meal at home or order take-out at your local German food outlet. Post your video or photo on your social media account and tag us to enter for prizes.



There will be an announcement and recognition of the winning runners and social media entries.

Saturday, October 17, 2020 LIVE EVENT - Facebook Live O’zapft is @ 12:30-1:30 pm EDT @ Der Biergarten Atlanta

If you are in the area, come on over: Oktoberfest menu, complementary Spanferkel roast, ceremonial keg, Oktoberfest Bier and more specialty beer and a whole lot of Oktoberfest Gaudi!
