TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa's Linde Oktoberfest is canceled for the first time in history due to COVID-19.

Officials say the board of trustees of Tulsa Oktoberfest, Inc. decided to cancel the fall event due to increasing coronavirus concerns.

Countless committed volunteers come together each year to produce one of the nation’s top Oktoberfest festivals, right here in Tulsa. Our paramount concern has always been the safety and well-being of our festival-goers, entertainers, vendors, volunteers and sponsors. Despite our best efforts, we have been unable to overcome the current realities of this pandemic.
Ashley Webb | Chairman of the Board of Directors.

The festival, originally scheduled for October 22-25, welcomes around 60,000 people annually to River West Festival Park in a five-day celebration of German culture.
