Rockville to Celebrate 60 Years of Sisterly Bond with Pinneberg

Rocktobierfest Offers German-Themed Fun for Everyone

Rockville, Maryland, Sept. 14 — The city hosts beer, bands and a German-themed bash as Rocktobierfest comes to Rockville Town Center from noon-6 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 7. 

A delegation of 60 guests from Pinneberg, Germany will be there to meet the Rockville community as part of festivities marking 60 years as Rockville’s sister city. The free festival will feature a beer hall with beer from 7 Locks Brewing and Gordon Biersch, two stages of music, food, an artisan area and kids activities.
