We are here rain or shine, and our event includes covered areas like the Tap House Grill Buxom Beer Garden, the indoor Sports Bar (inside Fremont Studios), and various lounge spaces around the event. 

Fremont Oktoberfest has been hailed as one of the top 10 places in the world to celebrate Oktoberfest. So come raise a toast with friends to the start of fall, and the abundance of seasonal beer flavors that come with it. View festival program.

Festival InfoFeaturing the biggest beer garden in the Northwest, Fremont’s three-day regional festival offers more than 100 bold microbrews and craft beers, plus live rockin’ Seattle bands, Buxom Royalty Contest, the Oktoberfest Village with fun for all ages, and even the Fremont Oktoberfest 5K – the ultimate beer run.

Taking over half of Seattle's eccentric Fremont neighborhood – aka the “Center of the Universe” – Fremont Oktoberfest is your chance to join tens of thousands of people celebrating in the city streets. We’re the number one Oktoberfest in the universe. Prost!

The festival is divided in two parts:

  • The Tasting Garden is 21+ with ticket options starting at $20, open Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
  • The Village is all-ages and free, open Saturday and Sunday.
