Lederhosen, dogs, German food and beer — lots and lots of beer — will abound at an annual celebration in Dupont Circle this weekend.

Glen’s Garden Market (2001 S St. NW) will host its second annual “Dogtoberfest” this Saturday from 3-7 p.m. The event was originally scheduled for last weekend, but uncertainty about the weather pushed it back.

Flying Dog Brewery is the market’s partner for the event and will bring three seasonal brews as well as collars and treats for the dogs.

The menu includes sweet and sour cabbage, cheddar bacon bratwurst and apple strudel. The market’s regular food service will also continue, but dogs are not allowed inside the store.

Patrons will use tickets to purchase food and beverages at Dogtoberfest. Tickets are sold on site and cost $2 each. Beers and food will cost two tickets, while larger plates will cost three.

“We are super excited about the weather forecast this weekend,” Glen’s Garden Market catering director Shana Muhammad said. “We’re hoping people will come by with a great attitude and ready to have fun.”

Wearing lederhosen, dirndls and other festival clothing is highly encouraged, Muhammad said. Dogs should follow the same dress code.
