The City of Gaithersburg and the Kentlands Citizens Assembly present the 20th Anniversary Celebration of Oktoberfest
Free wheelchair-accessible shuttle service will be available from a new location this year. Shuttles will run regularly during festival hours to and from satellite parking at 101 and 200 Orchard Ridge Drive, just off of Quince Orchard Road. Amidst horse-drawn wagon rides and pumpkin painting, festival goers can enjoy authentic Bavarian food and beer and lively performances by the Alte Kameraden German Band and Alt-Washingtonia Bavarian dancers on the Main Stage. Lederhosen and dirndls are optional as Alt-Washingtonia instructs and encourages participation in some of their dances. Free performances on the outdoor Community Stage will include a variety of local dance and singing groups. New to the festival this year will be an outdoor wine tasting and a children’s puppet show, held indoors at Kentlands Mansion. Kids will also enjoy a full day of pony rides, moon bounce, face painting, art projects, and many other activities. Please note that there will be a fee for some activities. Oktoberfest at the Kentlands is sponsored in part Herson’s Honda/Kia, Elaine Koch & Associates/Mike Aubrey & Associates, Embrace Home Loans, and Village Settlements.
