OktoberWest 2019

  • Charleston West Side (map)

In its 12th year, OktoberWest presented by BrickStreet Insurance is West Virginia’s largest traditional German Octoberfest and among the largest craft beer festivals in the state. After a record-setting attendance of 2,200 in 2018, another exciting year is expected with more local West Side businesses participating this year. Sample over 100 craft brews, and several limited Octoberfest and German varieties, and listen to three incredible bands at this year's festival on September 28th from 4 - 9 PM. Stein holding, keg rolling, and best traditional dress contests will return! It’s all about the craft brews, local foods, and live tunes on the City National Bank Stage!

All funds raised from OktoberWest will go directly back into Charleston’s Main Streets - West Side's programs, public art, and other community and economic revitalization projects.
