The 28th annual Oktoberfest along Annapolis Street and Giddings Avenue in West Annapolis offers traditional German food, beer and music from the crowd pleasing Om-pa-pa Band. Attendees will find vendors selling everything from bratwurst to fine art, roast beef to jewelry, and many West Annapolis clothing, antique, framing, craft and gift stores will be open for business.
If you're staying in downtown Annapolis, the Annapolis circular will make a special stop in West Annapolis during this event. You can find free parking at the State of Maryland parking garage at Calvert and Rowe Boulevard, which is a 15- minute walk to the festival area, or you can pay to park at the Navy Marine Corps Memorial Stadium which is just across Rowe Boulevard to West Annapolis. Two hour free parking can also be found in the community.
Please be sure to bring a valid license or military ID with date of birth to purchase beer.
