October is a time for eating Halloween candy, jumping in massive leaf piles and enjoying the fall weather before November hits. And let’s not forget: October isn’t October without Southlake Oktoberfest.

This October marks the 15th anniversary of the celebration, and the Southlake Chamber of Commerce promises it’ll be an event to remember. Admission to the festival is free – the only money you’ll be dishing out will be for the lip-smacking food, refreshing beverages and souvenir booth items.

This year, expect tasty grub and live music, as well as a fun-filled children’s area to keep your busybody kids entertained all night. Take a stroll in Town Square as you browse the wide variety of handcrafted art and crafts.

The best part of Oktoberfest: the wiener dog race. Watch as the cutest dogs compete for first place in their hilariously adorable costumes. You won’t want to miss it!

With over 100,000 people visiting throughout the weekend festival, you can expect nonstop holiday festivities that will create memories that will last a lifetime.

Free parking and a shuttle service will be available at White's Chapel United Methodist Church over the weekend. Shuttles will run continuously to and from Southlake Town Square.

This year’s celebration will take place October 7-9. To view shuttle hours and for more information on Oktoberfest, visit
