We know the idea of looking ahead to fall might be hard to stomach, but as we all know, summer goes by quickly. What’s more, there are actually things to look forward to this year like Leavenworth Oktoberfest. The iconic fall celebration is officially returning to Washington’s own Bavarian inspired town.

This year’s festival returns with three event-filled weekends. Running from September 29th to October 14th, there will be plenty of time to get in on the fun.
