OktoberWest will return in 2021 for a 13th year on September 25th, two years since the last in 2019!

OktoberWest presented by Encova Insurance is West Virginia’s largest traditional German Octoberfest and among the largest craft beer festivals in the state. After record-setting crowds in 2018 and 2019, 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 25th from 4 - 9 PM.

Stein holding, keg rolling, best traditional dress, sausage toss, and beer belly 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.

Stay tuned for announcements regarding ticket and band announcements in the coming weeks!
