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.

Augustober selected for Hagerstown Magazine’s 2018 Hot List

March 05, 2019

The Augustoberfest Charitable Foundation is honored to have earned the title of Hagerstown Hotlist’s Best “Festival/Special Event” of 2018. This award would not be possible without the continued support of our community and festival patrons from near and far. Your support aids in providing scholarship funds that benefit our Wesel Sister City Foundation to send students to Wesel, Germany and our Wesel students to come to America! We can’t thank you all enough! 2018 marked the festivals 23rd year, and as we reflect on the past and prepare for the 24th Annual Augustoberfest we are truly excited for what the future has to hold!
