Enjoy the changing season at the Alice Ferguson Foundation’s annual Oktoberfest at Hard Bargain Farm, October 8, 2016 from 1:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. in Accokeek, Maryland. Neighbors from near and far come and enjoy the celebration of autumn on our beautiful 350-acre Farm on the Potomac shoreline, featuring lively traditional Alpine music and dance, delicious German cuisine, old-fashioned haywagon rides, door prizes, barnyard animals, and beautiful fall scenery. Oktoberfest Hard Bargain-style has become one of our area’s popular fall activities, all the while benefiting environmental education programs that reach schoolchildren throughout the Potomac Watershed.
Highlighting Oktoberfest at Hard Bargain Farm is the shoe-slapping entertainment of the Alt Washingtonia Schuhplattlers. This wonderful dance group will have the crowd on its feet dancing and singing along to traditional songs of Bavaria and Austria. Throughout the day they will share Alpine folklore, costumes and plenty of laughs in a performance that appeals to all ages.
It’s no secret—the success of this annual event is in the food and drink! Be sure to grab some juicy bratwurst and sauerkraut, German potato salad, and apple strudel. Frosty mugs of imported German Beer will be on tap as will freshly pressed cider.
All proceeds from the Oktoberfest at Hard Bargain Farm benefit the Farm’s education programs.
Tickets are $15, $10 for members who purchase tickets in advance, and children 10 and under are free. Tickets can be purchased at the door, or order your tickets now.
