Join us as we march through the streets of Germantown, accompanied by music from our German Oompah Bands and participants from our neighborhood and others! The parade will march from 7th & Monroe, then turn onto 5th Ave, and continue on until reaching Taylor Street.
Highlights of the Parade include:

  • Nashville Mayor Megan Barry will kick off the parade at front end in the Oktoberfest Rolls Royce Convertible
  • Three of our visiting German Oompah Bands will march and provide live music
  • Several Germantown apartment complexes have built floats to represent their dwellings
  • The Dixieland Band and the A Plus Twirlers lead the middle section
  • The dog that wags the parade tail is our Pup Parade – over 50 costumed dogs and their owners
  • The Red Rover Jeep rounds out the end of the parade participants
