Helen GA Oktoberfest
Oktoberfest is what Helen is famous for. Oktoberfest is an
annual tradition designed to express Helen’s roots as a German town. This is
the world’s longest Oktoberfest and our festhalle runs daily with music,
dancing, German biergarten, and food. The chicken dance is a popular German
dance and is played often. The festival runs from mid September to the end of October.
There is even an Oktoberfest parade which celebrates many of the local business
in the Helen area.
A common occurrence during this time period is seeing
lederhosen and dirndls. Lederhosen are traditional German pants and men can be
seen wearing them. Lederhosen are made of leather and can either be short or
knee-length. Dirndls are worn by women and is the traditional dress for women.
The dirndl consists of a blouse, apron and full skirt.
Cabin Rentals of Helen usually sells out for this
celebration. It is usually best to call several months in advance to reserve
the cabin you want. Check out the Helen GA cabins
that we have in town close to all the Oktoberfest festivities to make your selection.
