Fremont Oktoberfest is Seattle’s fall tradition. Voted by USA Today, Orbitz.com and Bing.com as one of the top places to toast Oktoberfest, this three-day festival features a Tasting Garden, two stages with live music, Sunday Dogtoberfest activities and an Oktoberfest Village with a Kids Area and 5K Run.
The 16th Annual Fremont Oktoberfest takes place on the first official days of autumn, September 21-23, 2012, in the heart of Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood.
Fremont Oktoberfest hosts a 21+ Tasting Garden where guests can sample over 80 microbrews, German beers and wine. The Buxom Beer Garden, located inside the Tasting Garden, serves up microbrews in a macro glass – ½- and 1-liter souvenir steins. Various lounges and music stages provide guests with non-stop entertainment including the infamous Texas Chainsaw Pumpkin Carving Contest, Dog Modeling Contest, and Buxom Royalty Contest.
The Oktoberfest Village features its own by-the-glass beer garden, traditional German food booths, a free entertainment stage and a Kids’ area with Zucchini 500 races, pumpkin carving and Oktoberfest themed arts and crafts. The Oktoberfest Village is free and open to all ages.
The weekend also includes a Brew HA-HA of a run, the Fremont Oktoberfest 5K, complete with a beer belly division and appropriately ending at the Village Beer Garden. For those looking for a unique adventure, the Fremont Oktoberfest Street Scramble sends guests on a scavenger hunt to find the hidden treasures of the Fremont neighborhood.
