City of Helen 100 years

2020 marks the 50th anniversary of Oktoberfest. The City's restaurants, shops, hotels, and amusements will be open and offering Oktoberfest fun for all. Visitors are invited to experience authentic German food, beer and live music during September and October. There will be pop-up celebrations throughout the town, in addition to shopping, golfing, hiking, fishing, and all the other fun activities Helen and the surrounding areas have to offer. While the Helen Chamber of Commerce has deemed it best to postpone their 50th Oktoberfest celebrations at the Festhalle, businesses and restaurants are still open and visitors are welcome to explore the best of Alpine Helen as it shows off its brilliant, autumn colors and cool mountain temperatures. We look forward to celebrating with you. Please visit our Visitor Center's website ( for a full list of activities and businesses the City has to offer.
