Oktoberfest Party at Germany's Goethe Institute

Oktoberfest is going strong in Munich. But, instead of getting on a plane, why not visit German soil without actually leaving DC - for an incredible Oktoberfest Celebration!

Welcome in Oktoberfest in style as the Germany's Cultural Center opens its doors exclusively for our Meetup. In a single evening, join us for a truly amazing cultural celebration as we take you across the Atlantic to the old mystique of the Rhine and the charm of Wiesbaden.

Tonight, your are cordially invited to a huge Oktoberfest party at Germany's Goethe Institut of Washington, D.C. for an evening of BEER, Pretzels, German dance, DJ, and a true German Oktoberfest celebration.

Enjoy one of D.C.'s incredible German Dance Troupes! Dressed in Oktoberfest costume, marvel at their fantastic dance presentation, as they dance to the true German classic seasonal celebratory songs (with unqiue German instruments).

The presentation is followed by a dance lesson and participation by those of you willing to dare to truly dance in the traditional old European aggressive, and fun, style!


While enjoying wonderful Oktoberfest and German Hits in the beginning of the night, in the second half, our DJ transports you to a hot Berlin nightclub for late dancing to today's modern top 40 and club hits!


Enjoy a recurring German film featuring the beautiful cities, countryside, people, food, everyday culture and other secrets.

Suggested Attire: Smart Casual. German Oktoberfest Encouraged.
