The Next Best Thing to Being in Munich!

Who wouldn’t want to spend Oktoberfest in our own Bavarian paradise? Enjoy a picture-perfect German experience during the annual celebration of beer, food, and friends. Book your cabin rental soon so you don’t miss out on this once-a-year event! In case you need more convincing, we’re put together a list of reasons why you should set aside a weekend to drink, eat and be merry.

1. Beer. It goes without saying that beer should be first on the list. Beer and Oktoberfest are synonymous, right? And Leavenworth Oktoberfest delivers on that promise. Sample an array of local Washington brews, as well as beers straight from Germany! Arrive before noon to see the opening ceremony parade every Saturday with the Keg Tapping Ceremony. A tradition performed by the mayor of Leavenworth, this is a piece of Bavarian culture that you will want to see!

2. Food. Eat until your lederhosen is threatening to burst at any of the delicious vendors inside the event. Brats, brats, and more brats! Not to mention BBQ ribs, turkey legs, and pulled pork sandwiches. Fill in the cracks with a thick slice of German chocolate cake and a root beer float (or with more beer)! Enjoy all of the delicious and authentic German food that Leavenworth has to offer, and there’s no doubt you’ll walk out with a smile on your face.

3. German culture. Wander through the many vendor booths to find crafts, souvenirs, and other treasures. When you find that you’re tired of wandering, you can take a seat and enjoy some live music by both German and American bands. Test your strength during the Stemmen Contest- how long can you hold your full beer stein up in the air? Be the last standing and win a prize!
