Frederick's Oktoberfest

Please note: This event has already occurred.
With a large "festhall" for music and dancing, a beer garden for drinking and a special area for children, Frederick's Oktoberfest brings a festival atmosphere to the Frederick Fairgrounds. Taps pour beers from Frederick breweries Barley and Hops, Flying Dog and Brewer's Alley as well as from Germany. Polka bands and traditional German dance troupes perform both days, indoors and out. Each day features yodeling, polka and "biggest beer belly" contests. Children can decorate pumpkins, hop on a moon bounce, make scarecrows and watch performers. Proceeds benefit Frederick County charities through local Rotary clubs.
