Mark Your Calendar - Oktoberfest!

Pencil September 29-30th in on your calendars. Why, yes, that is the weekend following my birthday, how nice of you to remember. Coincidentally, it is also Frederick's Oktoberfest at the Frederick County Fairgrounds.

Hmmm . . . wait . . . Oktoberfest in September? At first I thought there was a joke about the intelligence of the city of Frederick in there, but I didn't realize that it's be celebrated in September in Germany for awhile. You learn something new everyday. Anyway, we've enjoyed the Maryland Brewer's Oktoberfest several times in the past but I'd like to check out Frederick's version this year. Looks like there will be more to do than just drink (what?!?).

Before they had one in Germantown, the closest to me was Frederick.
Frederick's Oktoberfest is very small, four craft stands, three beer stands, one food stand. But all the beer was great and the food was good enough for seconds. Oh and they had a moon bounce obstical course that allowed adults!! After a few cool blondes it was a lot of fun racing my friends. hehe.

We thought the Frederick Oktoberfest sucked. We went last year & were really disappointed. We've been to the Brewfest at the Timonium fair grounds and that one was so much better.

hmm . . .interesting. perhaps it's not all i hoped it to be? oh well, it's only $5. i think it will be worth the investment. if it sucks we'll just groove down 70 to the Mt. Airy wineries for the rest of the day : )

For some reason, my friend Kate, who lived in Germany for three years was insistent on going to Frederick's Octoberfest. So I conceded and we showed up and I must say, the authenticity may have been in question, but the food was quite good - Bratwurst, Potato salad, and saurkrat were above average. And you can't beat homemade ice cream sold out of a van, not to mention a guy selling marshmellow guns made of PVC pipe.
