What happened to the Fall Festival?

Due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding public health regulations, it was impractical to put on the Fall Festival event that we have in years past. This OktROWberfest was a more feasible substitute. Our hope is to revisit a more extensive event next year when there is more certainty around public gatherings.  


Will there be vendors?

No. This event is all about promoting and supporting our small businesses this fall, so we're putting the spotlight on everything our businesses have to offer!


Is the street closing?

No. Unlike our Fall Festival, we will not be closing the street for OktROWberfest. Traffic will be running per usual.


Are promotions running all day?

Some promotions will run all day and other businesses have set time frames for their events. Please be sure to plan accordingly so you can stop by all of your favorite spots.


Do I need a ticket?

No! This is an unticketed event, however individual businesses may require for you to RSVP in advance. Check the event page on our website for information on which events may require a ticket.


Where will this event be held?

Inside of our businesses! Each event/promotion will be held at the host business' building.

What happened to the annual Fall Festival on Barracks Row?

This OktROWberfest event replaces Fall Fest this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and our efforts to keep our neighbors safe and healthy. We will not be closing the street and having traditional vendors.
