Oktober Heritage Festival

 The Hohenwald Oktober Heritage Festival, previously known as Oktoberfest, is an annual tradition over 40 years old!

On the second full weekend of each October, we set up a stage in town for local musicians to perform, have bounce house fun for kids, create booth space for vendors of arts & crafts, and invite food vendors to come sell their wares.

In addition to the festivities in town, there is a 20 mile yard sale on Highway 20! This part of the Heritage Festival grew organically, as our local townsfolk saw an opportunity to join forces with our festival.

A few years ago, the festival was renamed from Oktoberfest to the Oktober Heritage Festival, and we are gradually adding events to highlight the different cultures that created Hohenwald. The "Oktober" highlights the Swiss-German founders of the town, hence the German name Hohenwald meaning "high forest." The Modern Homestead Expo showcases the Appalachia influence and Hohenwald's history of building itself from the ground up. Unfortunately 2020 has upended so many events, so be sure to check with the Chamber of Commerce to find out the latest schedule for all festivals.  Read more about Hohenwald's heritage here.  

Come on out and shop for secondhand treasures, handmade arts and crafts, or perhaps get a bite to eat!  But remember, 2020 is the year we have had to postpone many events.
