It’s time for Deming’s Oktoberfest. Oktoberfest is a Bavarian festival held annually at the Deming Log Show Grounds. The dates for this years festival are October 10th-11th.
I have attended the festival for the past several years and have really grown to enjoy it. The entertainers include the Polkatones, Syl’s Ya Sure Ya Betcha Band and the Rogen Bogen Dancers. It’s great fun to come out and enjoy the folk dancing, singing and activities. You will be amazed just how talented the dancers are and in awe by there wonderful Bavarian Costumes.
Several Bavarian foods are on hand including the traditional german potatoes, brats and more! Breakfast is served Saturday and Sunday morning from 7:30am to 11:00am and then the doors open for the at 12pm and close at 12am.
Admission to Deming’s Oktoberfest is $9 with advance tickets and $11 at the door. 21 and older only please. Camping is available for a $15 a night fee. To reach the Deming Log Show Grounds head out the Mt. Baker Hwy approx 12 miles east of Bellingham. Take a left on the Cedarville Rd, the log show ground are 1 mile up the road on the left hand side.

Also please note that the Oktoberfest is a fund raiser for the “Busted Up Loggers Fund.” The fund goes to help injured loggers from Whatcom County and their families in their times of need. Tons of volunteer energy and time goes into this events and it’s well worth it, so come on out support our community, dance, sing, eat and have a great time!
