Plan Ahead For Your Favorite Fall Events!

Germantown Oktoberfest

It’s time to raise your stein and celebrate like they did in the old country – with a biergarten and lots of family fun. The Oktoberfest started with the celebration of the marriage of King Louis I of Bavaria, and Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen. The community was invited by the royal family to celebrate in the public fields in front of the city gates. The day ended with horse races but the tradition continued year after year and became known as Oktoberfest.

Join us Saturday, October 5th from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm for lots of celebrating, including:
·         games and activities for kids
·         traditional German music and polka dancing
·         food and craft vendors
·         biergarten for adults age 21 and over

Oktoberfest is held at High Point Farm located at 23730 Frederick Road in Clarksburg, MD. For more information visit: or call 301-515-1589.
