Want to experience Oktoberfest without going to Germany? Helen, Georgia is the travel destination for you in October. This year is the 46th Annual Oktoberfest in Helen. Helen is about an hour and forty minutes away from Atlanta. On weekdays, tourists shop, drink beer, and eat. At night, the bars come to life. The celebration goes on through October 30, 2016.
What’s there to See and Do at Oktoberfest?
Eat plenty of delicious traditional German food, bratwurst, sauerkraut, and drink your fill of beer. Pretzels, homemade ice cream, homemade fudge, barbecue, fried chicken, fish and chips and just about every other food that typical festival-goers enjoy are also at Oktoberfest. Walk the streets and have your pick of restaurants. There’s even a Wendy’s and a Huddle House in the Oktoberfest jurisdiction.
Bigg Daddys is a popular restaurant in Helen. There were dozens of bikers there on the weekends and inside, patrons chowed down on food, like the fish and chips pictured below. The fried chicken wings also looked deliciously mouthwatering, and Bigg Daddys hand a long list of alcoholic beverages to try.
