When it comes to celebrating, our great city knows how to make the most of culture, tradition and global perspectives. Within its versatile landscape and cityscape, we are home to a variety of cultures that draw in and intrigue visitors from near and far. One of the things that I love about Seattle is that it has long made a point to set aside time to highlight the global flavors, traditions, and values that make this city so unique. Of all the celebrations the city hosts, Oktoberfest in Seattle Northwest may be one of the most well-known and well-attended on an annual basis. Where language, culture, and fun for all collide, Oktoberfest in Seattle Northwest has made a name for itself as one of the Emerald City’s most renowned celebrations. If you happen to be in town during the month of October, this is an event you definitely won’t want to miss.
