What to Expect for Oktoberfest 2022

September 19, 2022 / News

Adjusting for the pandemic over the last two years (2020’s event was a to-go format and 2021 was modified to be outside only with fewer tables spaced out for continued safety), the 2022 festival is back to its pre-pandemic glory! So, what should you expect? German food, beer, wine, music, dancing, and fun! And it’s all to raise funds for Frederick’s community needs.

FOOD & BEER – With four beer stations and two food centers, you will have the option of eating and drinking inside in our Fest Hall or outside in tents or in the sunshine. The kraut it back and so is the amazing German potato salad…yum! Additionally, more non-alcoholic beer options have been added to the beer lists this year!

ENTERTAINMENT – Attendees will have plenty of entertainment options, too. The Dan McGuire Group is back to kick us off on Friday night at our outside stage. A crowd favorite – Mike and the Continentals – will be in the Fest Hall on Saturday Night and Festival newbies, Kiti Gartner and the Drifting Valentines, will close our down outside on Saturday. The Sports Tent will again showcase college football throughout the weekend. The Kids Zone will be open 12-6PM on Saturday.

GROUP & FAMILY FUN – Don’t forget that Frederick’s Oktoberfest is a great place to have a friend and family day/night out! We have long tables and open spaces for group gatherings. If you are planning to bring a big group, reach out! We offer group ticket sale discounts. In the past, we have hosted birthday parties, rehearsal dinners, and class reunions!  

COMMUNITY IMPACT – Frederick’s Oktoberfest celebrates our county’s German heritage, brings friends and neighbors together for a weekend full of good food and drink, and raises monies to support our community’s many community causes and charities. Over the last 10+ years, this event has raised over $1,100,000 for the Frederick community. You are drinking and eating for charity. Thank you.
