Why does the Carlisle Barracks host an Oktoberfest? Army, Morale, Welfare & Recreation exists to enhance the quality of life, enrich living and working environments, and foster a sense of community for Soldiers, Family members and civilians. Since 2008, Carlisle Barracks has hosted Oktoberfest. This is a great opportunity for the military community to interact with the public in a positive and fun venue. Many service members have spent countless tours of duty in Germany and reflect fondly on their time abroad. We give back to our Soldiers a quality of life that they have pledged to defend for us all.
