As one of the top states for craft breweries, it’s no surprise that Washington has its fair share of Oktoberfests to attend. Opportunities for enjoying local brews and fall activities abound. Here are three Oktoberfest options in Washington for 2022.
Bier on the Pier, Anacortes
This annual festival in Anacortes takes place the evening of Friday, October 7 and all day on Saturday, October 8. Being only 2 hours from Seattle, this is a great option for a quick weekend or as a first stop on a longer coastal adventure. It’s a 21+ event with breweries, cideries, food trucks, and live music. Is there anything better than a local brew and stunning view?
Add outdoor adventure to your Anacortes trip by tacking on a day in Deception Pass, heading south through Whidbey Island, and even taking a ferry to the Olympic Peninsula.
Seattle’s largest beer festival is back! This 21+ event is taking place September 16-18. There will be over 100 beers to choose from, German bites, and contests like stein hoisting and chainsaw pumpkin carving. On Sunday, bring your furry friend along for “Dogtoberfest.”

The iconic Leavenworth Oktoberfest is moving to Wenatchee this year. Spend a Friday or Saturday enjoying the festivities, then enjoy hiking in the surrounding mountains, lake days, and charming shoppes in Leavenworth.
There are so many places to spend the night surrounding Leavenworth. Lake Wenatchee State Park is an ideal campsite year-round, or make your way down Icicle Creek Road for first-come first-served camping.
