When we created OktoberFest NYC, our focus was to host an event that we would personally want to attend – a celebration consistent to the official Oktoberfest in Munich. Expect to revel in the sunshine while enjoying traditional German beer and games fun for friends and family. The music is upbeat and will have you dancing and singing along to classics from different eras. Traditional dress is encouraged!

We would love to charge nothing for food and beer – but hey, it’s New York City.  Beer and steins will be for sale as well as food and non-alcoholic beverages.

We absolutely need volunteers! Follow us on Facebook and Twitter, and fill out our contact form.

While we encourage attendees, if they choose to drive, to arrange safe transportation, we do not offer a special ticket for Designated Drivers. While Oktoberfest is the focus of the event, it’s not the only thing that will be going on that day. We’ll have a bunch of food/non-alcoholic drinks, and drinking water throughout the day. New York offers a safe transportation alternative within walking distance of our event.

You definitely want to make the cut if the event gets sold out.

We can’t imagine why anyone would come to Oktoberfest and not want German beer – there is something for everyone!  Ask our pourers on-site and they’ll walk you through the beers offered. This year, we will have an additional option available.

Absolutely!  Sundays are the best family days  No one under the age of 21 will be permitted to drink beer.  Anyone under 21 without a parent will not be admitted, no exceptions.

Guests who select Free RSVP may find themselves waiting in line for admittance during high volume times throughout the day.

There will be plenty of food as well as non-alcoholic beverages available for purchase. Complimentary water stations are also available throughout the venue.

Of course, it’s a beer festival! You can always ride New York Mass Transportation.

New York has tons of parking available. Please be prepared, and bring cash. We don’t set the prices, and have no control over the charges.
