What could make a traditional Oktoberfest celebration even better? Two stages featuring live musical entertainment for 5,000 locals might do the trick! That’s the idea behind Rockville’s popular Rocktobierfest, anyway. One of the stages features traditional German tunes and dance performances, while the other stage invites all festival-goers to tap their toes and join in the dancing with popular rock music. Festivities begin at 11 am in the Rockville town square, and feature both tasting and pint pours from eight local craft breweries (be sure to grab yourself a crisp lager or a smoky dunkel while you peruse the vendor booths in the artisan market).
There’ll be plenty of things for the little ones to enjoy, too, ranging from activity booths, to arts and crafts, to noshing on tasty German frankfurters and other treats. So mark Oct. 5 on your calendar, gather up your friends and family, and head down for a good time.
