Oktoberfest 2019

We've got an exciting line-up of Oktoberfest Events!

When it comes to parties, we live to do things big. Our favorite party of the year is right around the corner. That’s right! It’s Oktoberfest in Germantown. We’re celebrating with multiple events leading up to and throughout the event. Nothing brings people together like a few cold ones in our outdoor beer garden. Come grab a drink and enjoy the party! Here’s a list of everything we’re planning at our Germantown restaurant for the occasion. We’ll catch you in the beer garden!


Friday, October 4th | 5pm-9pm
No one said we couldn’t start celebrating Oktoberfest early, and we’re doing it the best way possible - with tons of German beer. Bring your crew to Von Elrod’s from 5pm-9pm on October 4th for Okto-Beer-Fest to sample & vote on your favorite local Oktoberfest and Märzen-style beers!
