The newest community event, which is sure to become an annual favorite, was the first annual Oktoberfest Mount Vernon. On Friday and Saturday, October 13-14, 2017, over 1,200 neighbors, visitors, businesses, and beer lovers gathered on West Read Street, between Charles and Cathedral Streets. Local restaurants and shops set up booths to celebrate the neighborhood and Baltimore’s burgeoning Craft Beer Scene. This event will tentatively take place each October on West Read Street.
