Oktoberfest returns in September to Tysons’ The Boro

October will come a couple of weeks early to The Boro in Tysons.

With fall on the horizon, the mixed-use neighborhood near the Greensboro Metro station announced earlier this month will host an Oktoberfest celebration at 8350 Broad Street on Sept. 17.

Here’s more from the news alert on what to expect from the event, which will take place from 2 to 5 p.m. at Boro Park with a biergarten from The Sandlot Tysons:

Sip a stein and join friends and family for an afternoon of fall-themed festivities including outdoor games, crafts and a special Polka concert by The TKO Band (dirndls and lederhosen optional!).

The day will be packed with fun activities and giveaways, with special Oktoberfest embroidered pins, a glitter tattoo station, pretzel necklace making and plenty of IG-worthy photo ops in front of marquee letters that spell out “Prost!”. The first 150 guests to arrive at Boro Park will receive their very own branded mug from The Boro!

Oktoberfest at The Boro will be free and open to the general public, but advance registration is encouraged, the alert said.

In the meantime, the wait for The Boro’s newest restaurants will drag on into the autumn, despite previously expressed hopes for summer openings.

The Mexican restaurant El Bebe and Circa bistro don’t have set opening dates “but hope to open sometime in October,” says a spokesperson for Metropolitan Hospitality Group, which owns both brands.

“There have been a few delays,” the spokesperson said in an email. “I am not aware of all of the details, but I know that (as is the case with most projects) construction is taking longer than we thought it would.”

Caliburger didn’t immediately return FFXnow’s request for comment, but broker H&R Retail’s site plan for The Boro suggests the California-based burger chain will open later than El Bebe and Circa.

News that Caliburger was bringing a restaurant to the neighborhood first came out in November 2019, while El Bebe was once expected to open in late 2020 or early 2021. It was initially paired with Open Road Grill, another concept from MHG, but the restaurant group later switched to Circa.

The last retail tenant to open at The Boro was Bluestone Lane in October.
