Haile Village Oktoberfest – It’s Like Christmas in October

The Haile Village Oktoberfest is one of Gainesville’s largest fall festivals held each year.  Drawing approximately 4,000 visitors annually, the Haile Village Oktoberfest in Haile Plantation lights up the night of this neighborhood square, featuring live music, lots of food, lots of drink, and lots of fun for the kids.  Area businesses turn on the lights and open their doors late for this community event. 

The Oktoberfest is one of 2 huge seasonal events hosted by this Southwest Gainesville community. The other event, Light The Village, is a celebration of the winter season and also draws huge crowds. With the exception of a couple of years due to COVID, Light the Village happens in early December each year in Haile Village Center.
