Downtown Cleveland Celebrates a Successful 41st Annual Octoberfest

October 19, 2023

Downtown Cleveland proudly announces the enormous success of its 41st Annual Octoberfest, a celebration that left the community abuzz with excitement. With a multitude of activities and attractions, the event drew in visitors from as far as London to experience our Delta town.

This year's Octoberfest played host to an array of attractions and offerings, making it a standout in the festival's history. Close to 40 renowned BBQ teams, more than 10 food concession vendors and 100 talented arts and crafts vendors, a dedicated children's area, and numerous local organizations all came together to create a vibrant and welcoming atmosphere.

Festival attendees were treated to hours of live entertainment in Downtown Cleveland. Additionally, this year's attendees were offered with the extraordinary opportunity to witness a partial solar eclipse, further enhancing the memorable experience.

One of the highlights of this year's Octoberfest was the addition of exciting new activities. The BBQ Demos by the renowned Malcom Reed, the Wicker's Tour of Champions, and the JA Confetti Fun Run were met with enthusiastic participation and proved to be a resounding success. 

Octoberfest would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work of our incredible volunteers. The Chamber Staff expresses their profound gratitude for the countless hours of volunteer service that went into making the 41st Annual Octoberfest such a triumph.

Heartfelt gratitude is extended to the City of Cleveland for their invaluable partnership in making this event a reality. The dedicated teams at Public Works and the Police Department provide unwavering support and resources, which played a vital role in ensuring the success and safety of this event. Their collaboration and efforts are deeply appreciated.

The Cleveland-Bolivar County Chamber of Commerce wishes to express our sincere appreciation to the sponsors, whose generous support help make this event a reality each year. Each level of sponsorship provides a crucial resource to different elements of the festival.
