A taste of Germany is coming to Old Town Winchester with the 7th annual Oktoberfest. Attendees will sample German beer and wine and have the chance to eat Bavarian inspired food while experiencing different aspects of the classic world-famous Oktoberfest in Germany.
NEW this year is free general admission! If you just want to relax in the wonderful German atmosphere, feel free to bring anyone down and partake in the German culture. If you want to enjoy some of our beers, our advance tasting package is just $20, which includes six tastings and a 12oz glass beer stein. Tasting packages, the day of the event, are $25 and include the six tastings and stein as well.
Explore and try different types of beers and wines, featuring our local breweries Winchester Brew Works, Alesatian, Escutcheon, and Winchester Cider Works and their takes on classic Oktoberfest style beers. You’ll also be able to visit famous breweries from around the United States like Hefeweizen, plus award winning German classics like Paulenar and Erdinger.
Two high-energy bands will be returning this year for a pop/rock theme, including the Continentals, a band with a wide repertoire specializing in different ethnic styles of polka and waltz, and Bavarski, playing everything from Chicago-style Polish polka to rockin’ Oktoberfest party music. Also featured on Saturday is Alt Washingtonian Schuhplattler Verein the “Original Bavarian Dance Club of Washington DC”.
Over 30 costumed professional Bavarian dancers will bring fun traditions and create a true atmosphere of Oktoberfest. There will also be street performers, accordion players, and experiences for everyone! Anyone can compete in the Best Dressed Lederhosen and Dirndl Contest on Saturday.
