Oktoberfest returns to Leavenworth over three weekends (Fridays & Saturdays) after a three year hiatus. In addition to longstanding traditions of music, dancing, and the ceremonial tapping of the kegs, Oktoberfest will now take place throughout the town, including two fully programmed venues (beer gardens) located at the Leavenworth Festhalle and at Front Street Park. Local breweries including Icicle Brewing Co., Doghaus Brewing, and Blewett Brewing will be pouring their beers (and a special collaboration brew) alongside imports from Germany. And a Kinderplatz will feature kids’ activities, games, and a root beer garden just for them. Make plans to celebrate Oktoberfest in America’s unofficial Bavarian capital.
