About this Event!

Providing race fans and drivers with one of the finest racing events in the Upper Midwest. Join us and create lasting memories with friends and family from all over. 

Oktoberfest has grown over the years from a two day race event in the 1970’s and 1980’s to three in the 1990’s, and has been a four day weekend event for the past 15 years. Fans can even stay on site in our popular camper village for up to a week!

Oktoberfest race weekend is not something you can experience on the small screen, you have to be here to appreciate the everything that the weekend encompasses. 

Sure there's racing...

Are there a lot of cars in different styles and classes? Sure there are, but Oktoberfest is so much more. Enjoy the camaraderie of the racing families that make Oktoberfest special.

Thank you

We couldn't pass up the opportunity to say THANK YOU to all who attended and raced over the years at this annual event.Everyone of you make this weekend special and memorable.
