Fremont Oktoberfest – 5:00 pm – 09/16/16

Fremont, 3503 Phinney Ave. N., Seattle

Hailed as one of the “Top 10 Places to Celebrate Oktoberfest,” the 19th Annual Fremont Oktoberfest is taking over two city blocks of Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood, widely known as the “Center of the Brewniverse,” September 23-25th. While drawing from the original Munich Oktoberfest, in true Fremont fashion, Seattle’s Fall Tradition puts its own unique “delibertas quirkas” (freedom to be peculiar) twist on tradition. The Tasting Garden allows revelers to both sample from over 80 different microbrews in their 5oz mini-mugs and hoist full liter steins in the Buxom Beer Garden and the Sports Bar. Dirndls and Lederhosen are not required but encouraged. In traditional Oktoberfest style, Sunday at Fremont Oktoberfest is a family affair as guests 21 and under are admitted and free with a paying adult. Events and activities on Sunday are perfect for the entire family. Not only is the Tasting Garden open for adults, but kids activities, games, music and more are set for Sunday.
