Too Late — You Missed It!

September 16 – 18

Washingtonians know that Leavenworth Oktoberfest is the next best thing when Munich isn’t in the cards… but if you’re worn from a summer of travel, Fremont Oktoberfest might be a close second. With 100 beers, ciders, and seltzers on tap and counting, organizers say this will be Seattle’s largest beer festival

A diverse lineup of brews includes an award-winning Bavarian Hefeweizen from Snoqualmie Pass-based Dru Bru, a duo of classically German Oktoberfest Feistbeir and Märzen from Paulaner Brauerei, and a festive Chaider—chai-spiced cider—a collaboration between Schilling Cider and Portland-based Dragonfly Chai. Compare local favorites from Fremont Brewing Company to best-loved selections by Oregon’s Pelican Brewing Company. Rotating DJs will spin upbeat tracks all day for dance breaks between tastes. 

General admission is $25-$35 ticket depending on which day you go, and includes 10 tasting tokens and a mini 5 oz tasting mug; festival-only admission is available for DDs. For a heftier experience, upgrade to premium and score a glass stein plus a fill—you’ll probably need one for the stein hoisting competition, 7pm on Friday & Saturday only. Buy a Sunday ticket for a pup-friendly day at Dogtoberfest: CityDog Magazine is holding a cover model contest. Most importantly: leave the kiddos with a babysitter; this event is strictly 21+.
