6th Annual Oktoberfest
The German-themed beer garden's favorite event of the year will begin Friday, September 18th, and conclude on Sunday, October 18th. The annual Oktoberfest at Wunder Garten will feature five weekends chock-full of German food, music, contests, décor, and of course lots of beer!
Although this years Oktoberfest will adhere to DCs COVID-19 guidelines and emphasize safety, it will not be any less festive. The team at Wunder Garten has assembled a great line up of activities and specials that will entertain you, tantalize the taste buds, and create lasting memories.
Revelers will sip on beers in the Märzen-style hailing from Bavaria's oldest breweries like Spaten, Franziskaner, and Hofbräuhaus, as well as the best Oktoberfest, brews from local and regional breweries like Devils Backbone, Great Lakes Brewing, Port City Brewing, and Sam Adams Brewery. Oktoberfest beer flights will be available, and guests will be able to purchase their beers in one liter steins which can be kept as a souvenir.
The Federalist Pig, winner of Washingtonian Magazines 2019 Best of Washington Readers Poll Best Barbecue, will provide an authentic pig-roast every Friday. A Bavarian delicatessen and mainstays, Caliburger and La Buena Empanadas will offer additional fare to satiate the palette.
The popular Steinholding contests will be back along with other games suited for our socially distant environment. Guests can enter raffles for prizes that include authentic Dirndl and Lederhosen outfits from Munich and a 2-hour cabana rental with a $100 drink voucher at Wunder Garten.
Dogtoberfest returns to the festivities every Sunday from 12:00 Noon to 3:00 p.m. with a guest appearance by Woof Bowl Food Truck for Dogs on Sunday, October 11, and October 18. Dogs and (their hoomans) are encouraged to dress up for the events.
