Interestingly enough Oktoberfest (http://www.oktoberfest.ca/) which about 90 minutes from me bills itself as the one of the largest if Canada, possibly even North America.
However this could be marketing speak and there are various other Oktoberfest celebrations held in North America and around the world.

Where are the Oktoberfest celebration that you are to partake in Liutauras?

I dont have Lederhosen..

I do have shorts though. I wear from say March until October. I got reprimanded entering the office with them already a few times by the management. I do it to get some taint on my legs while I cycle. If I dont, I just have this brown face and a white body beneath it, because outside cycling I do not really like to get out and go and lie in the sun. I change into long pants within an hour when I am working. Dresscode. But I bet my manager is just jealous of my pretty legs! ;)

I think "Zinzinatti" would dispute that.

Cincinatti, Ohio was settled in large part by Germans who found that particular bend of the Ohio River to be reminiscent of the Rhine, so my Kentucky relatives told me. The seasonal changes are different, so their festival is supposed to be a week or so off from the German one. This year, it's from Sept 21-23d.

I've never been to it, but the zoo serves brat- and mettwurst. And had, to my surprise, a "bug" house.

The local fest down here isn't large - hardly a German restaurant in town at the best of times, and the 90-degree heat helps kill the authenticity. And since I don't care for beer, I've only been once. I loaded up on wurst and German potato salad and ended up on too many sales call lists.
