Hickory celebrates Oktoberfest with bands and brews

Updated:

Get ready for three days of jam-packed music, food and fun, as Hickory celebrates the 32nd annual Oktoberfest, held in Downtown Hickory Oct. 13 – 15.

The festival will bring carnival rides, amusement games, music, vendors and of course, food to the area in and around the Square.

Musical performers include the Foothills Oompah Band, On the Border - The Ultimate Eagles Tribute, David Childers and Nantucket. Be on the lookout for festival favorite accordion player Bob Wilusz as he roves through the festival playing traditional German music.

In the vendor area, you’ll find fine arts and crafts artisans, who will have items such as pottery, jewelry, glass, fabrics, paintings and wood crafting, just to name a few.
