Oktoberfest in October? NO! Let's expedite this beer-drinking celebration to Sept 26-28th in downtown Kirkland. Marina Park will transform into a Bavarian village with games, costumes, contests, beer, brats and undoubtedly, a weiner dog contest. There is also a Kirkland "Morganfahrt" Oktoberfest 5K on Sunday at 9am, so you can burn a few calories before you fill your stein. $35 for the run gets you into the Biergarten afterwards, if you are 21, of course.
Tickets and proof of age is are required at the authentic Muchen-style Biergarten which is open the following hours:
Friday, September 26 -- 4:00 PM - 11:00 PM* (21+ Only)
Saturday, September 27 -- 11:00 AM - 11:00 PM* (21+ Only)
Sunday, September 28 -- 10:30 AM - 6:00 PM** (21+ in Biergarten. 5K Run and Wiener Dog Races are all ages)
