Day 190: Oktoberfest!

Ziggy Zaggy, Ziggy Zaggy, Oy Oy Oy!   Every year, Southern Maryland pays homage to the iconic German festival with our own family friendly event featuring German foods, beer, wine, music, children’s activities, and live Bavarian entertainment.  Beer connoisseurs won’t want to miss the opportunity to sample great Oktoberfest selections in our very own beer garden, showcasing regional, imported, and local brewery selections (including the usual national favorites).  For you more adventurous folk, you can compete in one of the many contests being held, such as Miss Oktoberfest, Biggest Beer Belly, Keg Toss, and the Stein Holding Contest!

And you can even sample great beer and food with a greater purpose in mind.  Every year, Oktoberfest helps raise money for the Society for the Friends of Hospice.  Over the years, the Society for the Friends of Hospice has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars and made significant positive impacts on hospice programs and services in Charles County.
