Seymour Oktoberfest, Inc. is a 501(c)3 organization located in Seymour, IN. Our roots go back to the early 1970's, but despite our age, our organization is alive and well. Through the years, we have been led by numerous leaders in our community, and that tradition continues today with our current board of directors.


Having Fun.
Making A Difference.

Our mission is to celebrate our German heritage and promote community cooperation and progress.

Our vision is to be an impactful member of our community, promoting cooperation, pride, and progress. Our organization continues to reinvest in our community and its people. Our festivals attract people from around the world to celebrate our German heritage through unique and unforgettable experiences.


Our Oktoberfest is the primary way that we achieve our organization's mission while having a huge economic impact on Jackson County. Our nonprofit vendors alone have grossed over $200,000 per year through our festival, providing an excellent fundraising of opportunity for these local organizations. However, we give back to the communities of Jackson County in other ways, as well.

To reaffirm our comment to promoting community progress, The Seymour Oktoberfest Community Endowment Fund was established in 2019 through the Community Foundation of Jackson County. For more information about the Seymour Oktoberfest Community Endowment Fund, please visit http://www.cfjacksoncounty.org.


Additionally, each year, our organization sponsors various events in Jackson County. We look to sponsor events that seek to strengthen the bonds of our community and promote growth in a variety of aspects. If you would like to submit a sponsorship request, you may do so using the link below.

Lastly, we offer financial assistance to Jackson County nonprofits through our Community Progress Grant program. These grants are intended to benefit organizations that seek to have a positive impact on the communities of Jackson County. Grant requests are taken throughout the year; however, the total grants written are limited.
