2022 Octoberfest!

October 8, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm

40th Anniversary of Octoberfest

Octoberfest has served as the largest festival in Bolivar County. The weekend is jam packed with food, music, arts, and entertainment for the entire family! Join us in historic downtown Cleveland, Mississippi on October 8th for the classic BBQ battle, artistic showcase, and some awesome Delta jam sessions! Vendor applications for arts and crafts are live now, and we look forward to hosting you!

This year’s festivities will include a barbecue contest sanctioned by the Memphis BBQ Network, the Mississippi Delta State Barbecue Championship, arts and crafts, children’s activities, and live entertainment beginning at noon on Saturday and continuing throughout the evening! Deep Roots musicians Variety, Gran Boiz, and Craig Adams will be performing along with special guests Blackwater Trio and The Krackerjacks!

Octoberfest is also a contest on the Delta BBQ Battle circuit, which awards $10,000 to the Championship team and $3,000 to the Patio team with the highest cumulative score from three of the four contests on the circuit. With the participants hungrier than ever for competition, the food is sure to be out of this world! Check out our vendors and plan your weekend’s itinerary to secure your spot for the fall’s biggest party in the Delta!
