Welcome Fall With Oktoberfest Fun

It may still be summer, but we’re already dreaming of our favorite fall event: Oktoberfest! This Bavarian celebration—and New York tradition—comes back to the city the third week of September to welcome in the fall season. Among stunning autumn foliage and crisp air, don your lederhosen and get ready to taste some delicious beer. The celebrations take place in all five boroughs at popular public places like Central Park and Watermark’s Oktoberfest, so you’ll be able to join in on the fun no matter where in the city you happen to be. Make the rounds at buzzing beer gardens and beer halls with your travel crew and don’t forget to check out the amazing food, too. Central Park’s event kicks off all of the celebrations and starts September 21 and festive fun continues through October 6. Prost!
