The Tyson’s Biergarten is bringing a little Germany to Fairfax with the 2018 Oktoberfest Kickoff tomorrow (Saturday).
The Kickoff starts with the tapping of a Weihenstephaner Ceremonial keg imported from Germany. For adults there is also a meet and greet with beer representatives, but all-ages activities are also available like a moon-bounce.
The event is free to attend, running from 3 – 7 p.m. at the Tysons Biergarten (8346 Leesburg Pike). There is limited parking at the Biergarten, so attendees are encouraged to park in the nearby garage and check in with the cashier at the Biergarten for a validation ticket.
Tomorrow is just the start of a full month of activities at the Biergarten celebrating Oktoberfest. The next day (Sunday), the Biergarten will host its second annual OktoberBreast Fundraiser. The event will raise money for the Willow Foundation, an organization that provides funding for advanced stage cancer research.
The full list of Oktoberfest events at the Tyson’s Biergarten is below:

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.
He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
