OktoberWest 2023

OktoberWest will return in 2023 for its 15th year on September 30th!
OktoberWest presented by Encova Insurance is West Virginia’s largest traditional German Octoberfest and among the largest craft beer festivals in the state. We're excited for another exciting year with our local West Side businesses! Sample over 150 craft brews, and several limited Octoberfest and German varieties, and listen to three incredible bands at this year's festival on September 30th 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.
