Schifferstadt Architectural Museum Events

Schifferstadt Architectural Museum traditionally hosts four main events throughout the year:

Bell and History (opening day event) in April, Barnstormers Tour in June, Oktoberfest in mid-October, and Museums By Candlelight on the second Saturday in December. Landmarks may add events such as a spring festival or an educational event such as Frontier Day in certain years, but not annually. Landmarks hosts its annual meeting/speaker presentation in November. Visit our blog for other small events or lectures offered.

Oktoberfest at Schifferstadt, October 20th and 21st, 2018

Oktoberfest at Schifferstadt takes place on the third weekend in October each year. Saturday 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. - 5 p.m. rain or shine. Come enjoy the great food, lively German music, historic demonstrators, and hand-made products from many art and craft vendors. This German festival is an important fundraiser for the organization and upkeep of Schifferstadt. We could not host Oktoberfest without the partnership we have with Rotary Club of Fredericktown for this event. We are rounding up volunteers now! If you would like to help plan, or volunteer during the event, contact us at or call 301-668-6088. Special thanks to our generous donor Frederick County Bank.
