The first three weekends of October play host to our annual 'drink-more-than-you-should' fest. Weather is typically dry and mild during the day, and brisk to cold at night. The 'official' venue is the cavernous Leavenworth Festhalle. Click here to access the official site of Oktoberfest.
At the Der Hinterhof, we consider ourselves the alternative, unofficial venue for Rocktoberfest. When you get tired of the polka and chicken dance, when the beer line gets too long, or when you simply want premium Washington state craft beer and good old American rock & roll, then consider dropping in on our party. You will be welcomed!
During Oktoberfest fridays and saturdays the cover charge at Der Hinterhof is $5.00 each day. It's not free, but it's a lot less then the official venue.
