Road Closures Planned for Shirlington Oktoberfest

The 13th annual Mid-Atlantic Oktoberfest will be held in Shirlington on Saturday.

The event, hosted by Shirlington’s Capital City Brewing Company, is being billed as the “biggest one yet,” with beers on tap from 75 breweries. There will also be traditional German music and German food, like bratwurst, sauerkraut and soft pretzels.

The event starts at noon and runs through 7:00 p.m., though the taps will be turned off at 6:00. Admission is $25 and includes a tasting glass and 10 beer tickets. Additional tickets are $1 each, with a 5 ticket minimum.

To accommodate the event, Arlington County police will be shutting down the following roads around Shirlington Village, from about 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.

  • Campbell Avenue from Arlington Mill Drive to S. Quincy Street
  • S. Randolph Street from Arlington Mill Drive to the alley behind Charlie Chang’s

“Additionally, vehicles will not be allowed to exit the covered Harris Teeter parking structure onto Campbell Avenue,” police said in a press release. “Drivers should be reminded that traffic in the immediate area may be congested throughout the event, parking will be limited, and alternative modes of transportation are recommended.”

As in years past, police and paramedics will be keeping an eye on the event, which attracts a large crowd of beer drinkers.

Have you noticed a striking sculpture at Monroe Street and Wilson Boulevard? It’s the Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington’s newest installation, Make Your Mark, by Arlington artist, Adam Henry. This sculpture celebrates MoCA Arlington’s rebranding and brings the museum’s energy outdoors.

On February 11, come inside when the museum’s galleries reopen with two new exhibitions: Rebecca Rivas Rogers: Grey View and Crisis of Image.

Grey View, in the Wyatt Resident Artist Gallery, is an homage to “gray” and a snapshot of the artist’s process. Consisting of photographs, collage, and a site-specific installation, this show is an outgrowth of Rivas-Rogers’ visual investigations into places you see on your way to somewhere else.

On the main level, Crisis of Image features artists who seek equity in today’s saturated visual world by developing new methods related to the production of images.
