Oktoberfest is Here!
It’s Oktoberfest in Kirkland! From Friday Sep. 20 until Sunday Sep. 22, Kirkland’s Marina Park will transform into an authentic München-style Oktoberfest Biergarten. Enjoy bier by the half pour and full glass, while listening to live German music. Play a round of corn hole or give keg rolling a try. These are just a few examples of the fun to be had during Kirkland’s Oktoberfest. For more information, and to view the plethora events they’ve got planned, visit the event website here.
