Seattle’s longest-running Oktoberfest party – Fremont Oktoberfest

The annual event has changed and grown over the years, but Fremont Oktoberfest is Seattle’s largest and oldest Oktoberfest celebration and has been part of autumn in Seattle for 20 years. That said, I probably don’t need to share too many details: you already know the drill. (photo above via Facebook)

The three-day event includes a lot more than beer, but craft beer is certainly at the heart of the matter, with a selection of over 80 beers from which revelers can choose (see the lineup). This year Fremont Oktoberfest runs from Friday, September 23rd thru Sunday, September 25th.

On Friday and Saturday, Fremont Oktoberfest is for 21+ only. No exceptions. On Sunday, the entire family is welcome, including the pooch.


Besides Beer, What’s Up?

Other highlights include Friday night’s Miss Buxom Contest, Sunday’s traditional chainsaw pumpkin carving demonstration, and the Stein Hoisting Contest (Friday and Saturday). Also, Sunday morning you can participate in the Alpine Climb 5K, a not-so-grueling run/walk that includes an ascent up the hill at Gasworks Park. For more details about all of this and more, visit the official website here.


The event 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 St.
