With less than 60 days until we kick off Oktoberfest, here are a few favorites that are returning this year:
The German Heritage Tent: Frederick certainly embraces and promotes its German heritage and identity. Our German Heritage Tent debuted last year and added a unique experience to Oktoberfest. Led by Heritage Frederick, this attraction will return this year with activities, presentations, and more. Stay tuned for a complete schedule in the coming weeks.
Friday Night Kick Off: Another addition from 2016! Our Friday Night Kick Off will run from 6-9PM on Friday, September 29th and feature Flying Dog Brewhouse Rarities and Limited Releases, local food vendors, and entertainment by local favorite – Fuzzy Match! Buy your weekend pass to join us for this event.
Sports Tent: An American addition to Oktoberfest, we can’t hold a festival in the fall without showing football! Thanks to Audio-Video Group, college football games will be on the big screen on Saturday, followed by NFL games on Sunday.
Kid-Friendly Activities: We pride ourselves on being a family-friendly event and we invite you to gather your tribe to join our awesome Kid’s Zone this year. Led by Tots2Tweens, this area includes inflatables, face painting, a DJ, scarecrow making, and pumpkin decorating. It’s fun for all ages!
Stay tuned for a post next week sharing “what’s new” at Oktoberfest 2017!
