LEAVENWORTH, WA – July 11, 2022 – The City of Leavenworth today announced details about Oktoberfest 2022, taking place in downtown Leavenworth, WA on Sept 30-Oct 1, Oct 7-8, and Oct 14-15. It should be noted that the Oktoberfest celebration in downtown Leavenworth is unrelated to any Oktoberfest events at the Town Toyota Center in Wenatchee. Oktoberfest in the City of Leavenworth is a tradition that we want to continue, and protect, for our entire community and visitors.
As requested by the City in the new terms and conditions for the event, the celebration will look somewhat different than in years past. The festival area will be more spread out, with events taking place in the Festhalle, Front Street Park, and other areas downtown. Local breweries will be featured alongside traditional German beers (including a local brewery collaboration festival beer!) at the beer gardens, and there will be more family friendly events, including a Kinderplatz with a root beer garden.
“Our goal is to include the entire town in the festivities and make sure it’s fun and a win-win for everyone – local businesses, residents, and guests alike,” said Mayor Carl Florea, reiterating that “there will be beer gardens, and the tradition of cheers-ing with beer steins will continue.”
