About the Weekend:
University of Okoboji Oktoberfest originated 28 years ago with the bike ride. Cyclists have been able to experience the Iowa Great Lakes area in all of its fun & beauty even after what most people recognize as the “summer season” for Okoboji. With the leaves changing to their breath-taking shades of colors to the glistening waters of the lakes, Okoboji is definitely the place to be this fall! Join us for a weekend of the classic bike ride, live music, food, drinks, games and activities.
