Contest Now Closed. Congrats to our winner (selected at random)

We are giving away a pair of ticket to Fremont Oktoberfest. To enter the drawing, simply leave a comment here telling us why you deserve to win the tickets. We will pick a winner at random on Tuesday afternoon.

Today we welcome a new sponsor: Fremont Oktoberfest. Each year thousands of people flock to the center of the Universe (Fremont) to celebrate the harvest season with beer and autumnal revelry. The event runs from Friday, September 21 through Sunday, September 23. Fremont Oktoberfest is held in the streets of Fremont between Phinney Ave N and 1st Ave NW and N 35th St and N Canal St, with the entrance located at the intersection of Phinney Ave N and N 35th Street (map). The entrance is conveniently located across the street from Brouwer’s Cafe.

Fremont Oktoberfest is an all-ages affair, but the Oktoberfest Tasting Garden (beer garden) is reserved for grownups only (21+). Forty breweries pour beer at the event, some of them are local Seattle breweries and some are not-so-local breweries like Paulaner, Warsteiner, Hoffbrau, and others. Click here to see the complete brewery/beer lineup. Within the Oktoberfest Tasting Garden you’ll find the Buxom Beer Garden, where you can put down your tasting glass and pick up a full pint or a liter mug.

In addition to a big, raucous beer garden, Fremont Oktoberfest offers three days of live music, chainsaw pumpkin carving exhibitions, a village market featuring vendors with all sorts of autumn trades, a kid’s area, and an Oktoberfest-themed 5k run on Sunday.

    I want to win the free tickets so my buddy who’s making the trip all the way from L.A. for the event and I can make it down to the Oktoberfest! Okay, stretching the truth on that being the only reason (a buddy is getting married). But my local friends and I have been bragging about Fremont Oktoberfest for years and rubbing it in his face because Seattle is obviously much cooler than L.A.
    Finally, he emailed me today saying, “I definitely pay up for Oktoberfests”. Perhaps with the free tickets, we can pay to get our wives in!

    Hello! I love beer, so does my girlfriend! I just moved to Seattle and am looking for a new job. I am kinda broke so free tickets to the Fremont Oktoberfest would solve my no money and my love of beer problems. See you there!

    It is a challenge to find truly beer loving female friends. But I have rounded up a posse and we’re ready to don the dirndls and tip a glass to celebrate the great brews of the Northwest! Please support our efforts with free tickets! Thanks!

    I have never gone to Oktoberfest in Fremont before. I have enjoyed reading your twitter posts and articles throughout the year. I would love to continue to experience Seattle area beer festivals.

    My new years resolution for this year was to drink only free beer or beer I brew myself. Help!

    I think I deserve free tickets because I have to have a total knee replacement surgery on my right knee on Monday the 24th. This will be my celebration of my last days of walking for a while! I just had surgery on my left knee last October too.

    Plus my fiance and I just recently got engaged and we have been dating for 7 years :) time to celebrate!
