There is much to enjoy this weekend at the Ohio Expo Center. 

Two big events — Oktoberfest and the Fall Dispatch Home & Garden Show are taking place next door to each other.

Given that Oktoberfest was cancelled last year because of the pandemic, organizers of the 55th annual event are eager for its return.

With an absence of in-person festivities in 2020, Brand Ambassador Matt Schmidt said he’s excited for this year’s festival given its history and influence within Greater Columbus.

“We’ve been a part of this since the mid-1960s, but we’re extremely excited this year,” said Schmidt, a fifth-generation contributor of the festival. “With it being Oktoberfest season, I think everyone will be excited to be outside, drink some good German beer and some hearty food.”
