Fall is a frenzy of fun in Rivertown! As temperatures drop in the district, festival season heats up. Among the most popular is Kenner's celebration of Oktoberfest. Crowds are invited to enjoy traditional German fare, a variety of beers, live music, arts, crafts and more over the course of a two day festival. New elements are added each year and 2019 marked the first “Wiener Takes All” dachshund dog race. Traditionally scheduled for the first weekend in October, this festival is held in the 400 block of Williams Boulevard in the heart of the Rivertown historic district. Admission and parking are free.
