Oktoberfest in Helen
Head north about 1.5 hours to join the German celebration in Helen for its 52nd year. Visitors embrace all things Bavarian from food to beverages to music and dancing. Kids enjoy the festivities too with their own dance floor (and the always kid-favorite chicken dance).
The festival runs Thursdays-Sundays from September 8-25; then it moves to a daily schedule from September 29-October 30.
