Meerkerk Gardens celebrates fall with their Octoberfest and fall plant sale.
The festival happens from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturday, October 7 just as the gardens start flashing fabulous fall color. Enjoy the sights, sounds, and tastes of Bavaria.
The Oompah-sters German Band will be performing from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. and is composed of members and guests of Whidbey’s Saratoga Orchestra. The ensemble performs traditional German Beer Hall music, rollicking polkas, lively marches, and more.
Accordion player Lori Hansen will be performing from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on the gazebo stage. Save your appetite for a hot bratwurst from The Chef in the Black Bandana.
The Beer Garden offering beer from Whidbey Island’s Thirsty Crab Brewery will wet your whistle.
Rhododendrons also will be a big part of this festive event. Check out the nursery! Choose from hundreds of plants on display just in time for the fall planting season.
Adult admission to Octoberfest is $10 – payable at the Meerkerk gatehouse entry by cash, check, credit card, or prepay on our website.
