The Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce is reminding Restonians (and near-Restonians) to “wear your Lederhosen — and drink beer!” in this promotional video for this weekend’s Oktoberfest Reston.
Online beer and drink ticket sales end Thursday at 5 p.m. So if you want to avoid lines, you can act now. Otherwise, tickets are available on site.
The festival runs Saturday, Oct. 10, noon to 11 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 11, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Parking at Reston Town Center is free. Admission is free.
Beers on tap: Blue Moon, Miller Lite, Samuel Adams Oktoberfest, Yuengling. Beers available in Oktoberfest’s Craft Beer Alley: Flying Dog, Heritage, Old Ox and Old Bust Head.
Food will be available from American Tap Room, Clyde’s of Reston, Buffalo Wing Factory, Naked Pizza, Pittsburgh Ricks, Bento House, Tavern 64 Regional Kitchen, The Big Cheese, The Melting Pot, The Sprouted Spoon, and more.
Live Entertainment from Alpine Dancers, The Low’nBrows German Band, Gonzo’s Nose, DJ Edward Daniels, Kings Park German Band, Herr Metal & Dr FU and DJ B Rok. Visit the event website to see exact schedule.
Oktoberfest will also feature the Reston Pumpkin 5K (and kids Pumpkin Dash) on Sunday morning. Runners, feel free to break out your Halloween costume for the race. Visit the Reston Pumpkin 5K site for more information and registration.
Meanwhile, the Chamber says it has an urgent need for volunteers for Oktoberfest. Volunteers receive T-shirts and 12 free food/drink tickets. You can volunteer as an individual or as a team, which is great for offices looking to increase their company profile while doing community service. Check out the volunteer shifts and position available and register online.
