Weekends in October in Hermann, Missouri
The wonderfully friendly people of gorgeous Hermann, Missouri celebrate their German heritage all year long, but every weekend in October they celebrate with a special gusto. On average, thousands of visitors travel to this small town to listen to pollka music, taste the traditional foods and sample local wines.
Oktoberfest events are held throughout the town, however, most people head to two largest wineries, Hermannhof and Stone Hill. Stone Hill, an award winning winery, sits on a hilltop overlooking Hermann. It is the best place to have some wine and enjoy the beautiful fall colors. The Hermannhof Winery is a bit "wilder" so take a trip there to see some lively crowds feasting on sauerkraut, tasty brats and other traditional German foods.
Take time to enjoy the fall season because before you know it, winter will be here!
