Wunder Garten’s Oktoberfest Festival — The Largest and Most Festive in the DMV

Wunder Garten’s Oktoberfest Festival is chock-full of German cuisine, live bands, Bavarian games, DJ parties and, of course, lots of beer! It runs from Sept. 17 through Oct. 10.

Revelers can sip on beers in the Märzen-style hailing from Bavaria’s oldest breweries like Spaten Franziskaner and Bavarian State Brewery Weihenstephan as well as the best Oktoberfest brews from local and regional breweries like Devils Backbone, Port City Brewing, Left Hand Brewing Co. and Red Bear Brewing.

Café Berlin, a DMV favorite, will anchor Friday nights, bringing authentic tastes of German cuisine to Wunder Garten. Mainstays Swizzler and La Buena Empanadas will offer additional fare to satiate the palette.

The popular Bavarian Olympics is in full swing with stein-holding contests and traditional Bavarian games. Guests can compete to win an array of prizes and are encouraged to wear traditional German fashions, Lederhosen & Dirndl, for additional chances to win on-the-spot prizes.

This year’s Oktoberfest festival is brought to you by Spaten Lager and the support of the Embassy of Germany, Destination DC and the North of Massachusetts Business Improvement District (NoMa BID).

Wunder Garten is located at 1101 First Street NE, Washington, D.C.
