From Meridian Pint:
I would like to welcome you all to Oktoberfest in Columbia Heights. As we approach the end of the 16 day celebration known around the world as Oktoberfest, Meridian Pint will be celebrating with our first annual Oktoberfest Neighborhood Festival. Traditionally ending on the first weekend of October, we have chosen October 6th to host this block party style event in conjunction with this years Columbia Heights Day Festival.
Included in this celebration will be The Edelweiss Band, a dog show, a moon bounce, face painters, several local farming vendors as well as a charity dunk tank. The charity dunk tank proceeds go to benefit the Harriet Tubman Elementary School and will provide an opportunity to dunk some of your favorite local business owners and managers. Additionally, Meridian Pint will host a large adults only outdoor beer garden featuring 6 German Oktoberfest beers while indoors we’ll have nearly 24 American Oktoberfest beers all paired with authentic bratwursts from our outdoor grill.
Enjoy a wonderful day of festivities up and down 11th Street while celebrating the tradition of Oktoberfest. 11th Street will be closed from Park Street to Monroe Street for this family friendly festival so be sure to come hungry and thirsty.
