There’s a reason Kirkland is home to Seattle’s most authentic Oktoberfest tradition! Kirkland Oktoberfest is a three-day München-style Oktoberfest Biergarten. Between drinking full pours of imported German biers, eating traditional foods, Wiener dog races, and swaying arm-in-arm to live oompah (S-Bahn, anyone?), you’ll soon wonder if you’ve been transported smack-dab into the middle of Bavaria!

The Real Deal... an Authentic German Biergarten

 

Drink bier the way it’s meant to be drank - by the full pour! No tiny taster glasses or crazy long lines here. Enjoy a full 16oz pour of your favorite imported German biers or enjoy local craft favorites as well!

Friday, September 20: 4 PM-11 PM

S-Bahn

Hold onto your Lederhosen, the entertainment lineup is awesome, including the best German bands and entertainers around.

Singer and accordionist Richard Tyce founded the S-Bahn Band in Vancouver in the early 90’s. With a diverse and eclectic repertoire, the S-Bahn specializes in Oktoberfests (German) and Malankas (Ukranian). Highlights include the “Fall Crawls” during which the S-Bahn tours the Oktoberfest circuit – including the very popular Leavenworth Washington and Mt. Angel Oregon Oktoberfests.

Why the name “S-Bahn”? S-Bahn is the commuter train that connects cities in Germany with their suburbs.
The S-Bahn connects people, it brings people together.

Bavarian Beer Garden Band

Bavarian Beer Garden Band is not your Grandpa's Polka Band – they are THE Rockin' Polka Band and a uniquely Northwest festival band with an attitude and a twist. 

BBGB plays music that ranges from traditional European Alpine to German Pop (schlager) to lively Polkas and well known PARTY ROCK song.  They also can transform into a high energy R&B show that they call the BAVARIAN BLUES BROTHERS! You can't help tapping your feet, singing along, clapping your hands, or dancing to their music.

 

BBGB features top shelf musicians who represent some of the best in their field. Greg Perry, Accordion and Lead Vocals; Gary Beyer, Soprano and Tenor Sax and Vocals; Gordon Tibbits, Lead and Rhythm Guitar and Vocals; Tero Jannko, Bass Guitar and Dan Chappelle, Drums.
