October 1 - October 31
Get in touch with Rock City’s German heritage during the 15th annual Rocktoberfest, weekends in October. Rock City Square will be transformed for a celebration of harvests and fall foliage. This premiere autumn festival includes German music, German food and fun for the whole family. Experience German culture at Rock City as we celebrate and honor our founder Frieda Utermoehlen Carter. This event was selected as a Top 20 Event for 2019 by Southeast Tourism Society! We also continue to partner with a local breast cancer awareness organization, CHI Memorial Foundation, providing scholarships to students whose parents have been affected by this disease. www.seerockcity.com/rocktoberfest.
Due to the pandemic in 2020, we altered this event and called it October Days – we had a record number of attendance during the month of October, despite COVID-19.
We advise travelers to check our website for the most up-to-date info regarding masks and other safety precautions should pandemic restrictions still be in effect.
