2023 Oktoberfest Load In Info and Map

Guten Tag, meine lieben Marktfreunde! Good afternoon, my fine Market friends! I’m thrilled to let you in on the finalized plans for this year’s Chattanooga Oktoberfest®!

Vendors can load-in starting at 1pm on Friday (not earlier) the 13th, and we will be onsite until 6pm or 7pm. Overnight CPD security will be onsite through the weekend. No walk-up vendors; advance registration is required.

If you need to load-in on Saturday, arrive no earlier than 8am and no later than 9am; the roads will already be sealed, so no late drive-ins except by special arrangement with Chris. The Sunday-only participants should also arrive between 7am-9am; crowds will arrive early on Sunday, and stay late.

Absolutely no parking on the sidewalks/entrances for this event, please. We’re expecting large crowds, and we need to put on our safest and most pedestrian friendly hats

Saturday hours: 10am-8pm; Sunday hours: 11am-5pm.

Oktoberfest Merch

If you missed out on the online sale of Oktoberfest Swag, we’ll be set up to offer you first dibs on the merchandise on Friday the 13th, starting at 2:30 p.m. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to offer the usual vendor discount.

Vendor Map

To ease the load in process, I’m attaching an overview of the vendor map. This is not intended to be the definitive reference. As always, some things may have to shift, so you will still need to come to check in for your final booth assignment. Looking at you, Food trucks - Chris will be onsite to load our food trucks in on Friday (after 1pm) and help ease some of the mayhem.

What are the chances of getting electricity??

We can never make guarantees, but I think we’ve been able to get electricity to your booth before, so I’d say 70/30 for.

I had someone else ask about electricity because they were concerned about lighting an outdoor event - I’m going to piggyback here and let everyone know that the pavilion does have lighting for the event, and we will have significant lighting in the front stage area brought in. There should be no trouble seeing, aside from possible beer goggles.
