TULSA, Okla. — Linde Oktoberfest is back in Tulsa after canceling last year's event due to COVID-19.
The 2021 celebration of German culture, food and beer is open to the public from Oct. 21-24.
Unlike past years, tickets and packages for the festival must be made in advance.
This year's Oktoberfest is all about the fun and excitement of getting together, and of course, the beer.
One place that excels at it is Marshall Brewing Company right here in Tulsa. German and Tulsan heritage is all around the Marshall Brewing Company.
And beer isn't the only German thing you'll see during Oktoberfest. There's plenty of the German language you can try and learn.
If you're looking for something sweet, no worries! Ludger's Bavarian Bakery is there to help out.Ludger says Oktoberfest helped put the bakery's business - and its cheesecake - on the map.
The bakery's cheesecake is different from New York-style cheesecake. Ludger's is a cheesecake center, sandwiched by two fluffy pieces of cake. The first time Ludger's was at Oktoberfest, they sold over 10,000 slices.
If you can't make it to Oktoberfest this year, check out Ludger's Bavarian Bakery at 91st and Sheridan year-round.
Due to construction along South Jackson Ave., there won't be public parking at the event site.
There will be parking areas along Boston Ave. from 8th Street to 12th Street with shuttle services that also service Downtown Hotels, the Blue Dome District, Oklahoma State University Greenwood, 81st and Harvard and I-44 and Yale one hour before and after event hours.
