Leavenworth Oktoberfest always falls on the first three weekends in October. We celebrate each Friday & Saturday. The 2012 dates are:
- October 5th-6th
- October 12th-13th
During Leavenworth Oktoberfest, you will find free transportation, live music, German food, arts and crafts, and activities for the whole family (oh yeah, and did we say “beer”?). Make sure to book your hotel early!
Oktoberfest in Leavenworth is the next best thing to being in Munich! This year we have four venues with live entertainment and Free Shuttles in Leavenworth (Shuttle's are available outside Leavenworth for a fee), with afforadable routes all the way to Wenatchee! There are cool social media contests, mouthwatering food and free Wi-Fi Internet from Genext. Come early and check out Leavenworth and the surrounding communities; you can send an email to your boss--he’ll think you’re still working.
What ever you do, don’t miss our Keg Tapping Ceremony at 1:00 pm every Saturday when Leavenworth's Mayor will honor a Bavarian Tradition of “tapping the keg”. Then plan on hanging around and checking out music from our own Musikkapelle Leavenworth who will be joined by other musical groups from the US and Germany.
