The 7th annual Oktoberfest will bring German music, dancing and much more to Old Town Winchester! This event is expected to be just as big and exciting as last year. Oktoberfest will once again encompass most of the Loudoun Street Mall including The Shenandoah Valley Civil War Museum lawn and the Taylor Pavilion. Attendees will have the opportunity to sample German-inspired food, beers, and global wine while experiencing different aspects of the German culture.
Everyone is invited to compete in the Best Dressed Lederhosen and Dirndl Contest on Saturday. The top prize is an overnight stay at the Bavarian Inn in Shepherdstown.
A high energy band is back in Winchester for Oktoberfest: The Continentals, a band with a wide repertoire specializing in different ethnic styles of polka and waltz.
Also featured on Saturday is a lively professional Bavarian dance group who will bring fun traditions and create a true Oktoberfest atmosphere. There will also be street performers, accordion players and activities for everyone.
