Bethesda Oktoberfest Celebrations by Lise Howe, Bethesda Condo Queen

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Capital Properties DC AB15253

October is here - and it brings us so many opportunities to celebrate.  First to come to mind is the baseball play offs ending in the World Series.  Who can forget Mr. October, Reggie Jackson!  Then of course, there is Halloween at the end of the month, with ghosts and little witches all collecting candy and looking just darling.  October is great for long Sunday drives into the country too. The leaves are changing and apples are just begging to be turned into pies and sauce for later in the year.  But that is not all that October brings!  Oktoberfest season is here — which means it's time to try a new kind of beer - or maybe just celebrate with your favorite pint!

Oktoberfest is a gift from Munich, Germany and an opportunity to celebrate great beer, good people, and Bavarian culture.  Happily, there are plenty of Oktoberfest celebrations right here in Montgomery County so no one needs to head off to Munich.

  • What better place to start your Oktoberfest celebrations than in Germantown, MD?
    Germantown Oktoberfest (Oct. 5):
    Germantown celebrates Oktoberfest on Oct. 5 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. There will be a parade, live music, a beer garden, free giveaways, and more. The parade route is on Century Boulevard, starting at UpCounty Regional Services Center and ending at the police station. (Be careful not to celebrate too hard in front of the police station!) The beer garden and live music will be at BlackRock Center for the Arts. Located along Century Boulevard, Germantown.

  • Rocktobierfest (Oct. 5): Rockville gets into the celebration of Oktoberfest with two stages of entertainment, German food, kids activities, artisans, and drinks for sale by local breweries and vendors. Rocktobierfest, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., is expected to attract more than 5,000 people to Rockville Town Center. Located at 200 E. Middle Lane, Rockville.
  • PIKEtoberfest2019 (Oct. 6): PIKEtoberfest2019 returns Oct. 6 and will feature live music, kids activities, a sand castle exhibit, and a craft beer garden. The fun starts at noon at Pike & Rose in North Bethesda. Located at 11580 Old Georgetown Rd., North Bethesda.
  • Okoberfest - Kentlands (Oct. 13):  The following weekend finds a celebration in the Kentlands.  Oktoberfest is on Oct. 13 from noon to 5 p.m. The festival will take place in and around the Arts Barn, Kentlands Mansion, and Kentlands Village Green, and along Main Street and Market Square. Enjoy traditional festival food, drinks from local breweries and wineries, and live music from the Alte Kameraden German Band and Alt-Washingtonia Bavarian Dancers.

Hi Lise... no shortage of Oktoberfest events in your area (nor are there in mine). Our grandson was just recently in Munich to enjoy the "original" Oktoberfest.

Morning Lise.

If I lived closer, count me in.  I haven't checked to see if we have something like that, around my area

Oh boy! This is definitely a BIG time in our area too, Lise! I often joke that we have more craft breweries than grocery stores. While that's not true, they do seem to be plentiful and now, celebrations are every weekend this month!

The Bethesda condo queen certainly has a great list of OktoberFest celebrations in Bethesda to enjoy. I hope you are able to take a little time from work to participate in at least one of them, LIse!
