The National D-Day Oktoberfest returns next weekend at Crystal Cit.
The event will feature German beer and food and more unique local traditions, such as dog-themed events linked to the event’s support for the Animal Welfare League of Arlington (AWLA).
Oktoberfest is scheduled for Saturday October 2 in the Lidl parking lot at the intersection of Crystal Drive and 33rd Street S. The event is free and beverage purchases during the event will benefit AWLA. The event is scheduled for rain or shine, and tickets are non-refundable.
“From live bands and crisp German lagers to a Barktoberfest dog race for puppy-friendly activities and a variety of games to entertain all ages, this event has something for everyone,” the National Landing Business Improvement District (BID), host of the event, said on the event’s website. “So get out your lederhosen and come enjoy the autumn weather, as well as a variety of food trucks and vendors serving traditional (and not so traditional) German dishes.”
The National Landing BID and AWLA co-organize the event with the local brewery New quarter brewery.
Pre-registration is required and there is a participation cap in place for the event. Participants will also be required to present proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test within the previous 48 hours. Unvaccinated participants and children under 12 should wear a mask.
