Augustoberfest 2021


Augustoberfest 2021 – Foundation Sponsoring Downtown Plaza Festival

The Augustoberfest Charitable Foundation (“the Foundation”) is pleased to announce they will be sponsoring the Downtown Plaza Festival, small scale German-themed event, which will be located at University Plaza in Downtown Hagerstown, MD on Saturday, August 21, 2021.
There will be no entry fee for the Downtown Plaza Festival! Some of the traditional food options from Augustoberfest will be offered for sale, as well as beer and wine from 12PM-8PM. Unfortunately, due to the smaller space, there will not be the traditional artisan vendors, but live music will be provided from 1PM-7PM. Guests are invited to bring their own chair to sit and enjoy the entertainment; however, due to health department regulations, outside food and drink will not be permitted. Follow Augustoberfest on Facebook, Instagram, or visit www.augustobefest.org for updates on the 2022 anniversary event.
