Go: Oktoberfest; vintage toys; brewfest; quilt expo

1. Oktober in September

Get a taste of Germany right here in Clark County. After all, what’s fall without beer gardens and German food? The fifth annual Washougal Oktoberfest, starting at 4 p.m. Sept. 29 at Reflection Plaza at 1703 Main St. is an early one — starting the same month as Munich’s fest. Polka until your feet are blistered while listening to accordion tunes, and then take a load off in the beer garden, which will feature local suds from 54-40 Brewing Co. and Doomsday Brewing. The Camas Lions are providing German food specialties and 100 percent of the fest profits go to nonprofits, including aiding the Columbia River Gorge relief efforts. Ages 12 and under are admitted for free and receive a punch card for food. Those under 21 are allowed into the festival from 4 to 8 p.m., and the beer garden stays open until 10 p.m. The cost for the family festival is $5, while a commemorative stein beer garden ticket goes for $13. 360-335-1008 or www.visitwashougal.com

2. Toys from the past

Let nostalgia take over at the Vintage Toy and Collectible Show on Sept. 30. Featuring more than 100 vendor tables at WareHouse ’23 at 100 Columbia St. in Vancouver, this market runs the gamut from vintage and antique toys, games and dolls to train sets, records and other throwback trinkets. It has everything to make you feel like a kid again, and even free admission if you’ve got a kid — for those 15 and under. The show, which requires vendors to have at least 80 percent of their items as vintage or antique, runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., with $10 early bird tickets for entry during the first 90 minutes. After 10 a.m., general admission drops to $3. 360-513-4828 or www.facebook.com/Vancouver-Toy-Junkies-221542678050307
