Our annual festival pays tribute to the area's rich German heritage and supports scholarships for exchange students to Hagerstown's Sister City—Wesel, Germany. This exciting event is run by the nonprofit organization, the Augustoberfest Charitable Foundation.

Sponsorship opportunities available!

For the 19th year of Augustoberfest, we will have a two-day festival that boasts festivities found at traditional Oktoberfest celebrations in Bavaria. The attendance of this event has doubled in size over the last two years and is becoming one of the most anticipated festivals in Washington County.

Fun for the whole family!

Entertainment, food, a charity walk and a German car show—you won’t want to miss a thing. And don’t forget to bring the kids—there’s fun for them, too! Our popular Kinderwunderland is an expanded children’s entertainment area featuring a variety of activities and entertainment for the youngest Bavarian enthusiasts.
