Oktoberfest Kid's Games

The kinder can join in on the fun with games at the Musikzelt. Try your hand at the pretzel toss, mini masskrug, Valina says, or ein, zwei, drei … halt!

Ein, Zwei, Drei . . . Halt! - The classic game Red Light, Green Light goes German as kids race to the finish line. Don’t forget to freeze when the emcee shouts “Halt!”

Valina Says- Just like Simon Says, follow the commands of our emcee to win great prizes. Better do as ‘Valina Says’!

Mini Masskrug- Show off your mini muscles in this test of strength and endurance to see who can hold a mug of water at shoulder level the longest.

Sunday Hund-Day

On Sunday only, attendees are encouraged to bring their Dachshunds to participate in the Dachshund Dash, presented by Raising Cane’s and Pappy’s Pet Lodge. These fun races are located at the Musikzelt and offer prizes for the fastest hound. New to Addison Oktoberfest, meet the dozens of dog breeds that originated in Germany at the German Dog Showcase inside the Paulaner Partyhalle!

Personal pets not allowed.


Tag-A-Kid keeps Addison Oktoberfest's smallest festival-goers safe! Children are given temporary wristbands that list their parent's contact information and get to take their photo in our tiny Addison Police car. The system makes it easier to return a lost or separated child.
