Lidl Lot at Crystal Drive & 33rd Street South


From live bands and crisp German Lagers to a Barktoberfest dog-run for pup-friendly activities and a variety of games and rides to entertain all ages, this event has a little something for everyone. So, break out your lederhosen, and come enjoy the fall weather, as well as a variety of food trucks and vendors serving traditional (and not-so-traditional) German fare.

Hosted by the National Landing Business Improvement District, in partnership with Lidl, New District Brewing and Animal Welfare League of Arlington, this year's event will be free to attend with drink ticket purchases benefiting Animal Welfare league of Arlington.

While the event is free to attend, in the interest of everyone's health and safety, there will be an attendee cap, and pre-registration is required.

All attendees will be required to provide proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test within 48 hours along with their ticket. Unvaccinated individuals and children under 12 will be required to wear a mask.

Yes!
