This traditional autumnal festival, which originated in Germany, is celebrated all over the United States by drinking copious amounts of beer, sporting lederhosen, munching on pretzels, polka dancing and merrymaking.
Events run from September through the end of October 2022.
The first Oktoberfest was held from October 12–17 in 1810 to honor the Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig’s marriage to Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen. Supposedly, the celebration date was changed to the third week in September in the U.S. due to cold-weather concerns.
Oktoberfest celebrations take place in all five boroughs in New York City at various restaurants, bars and public spaces. Check out which ones are celebrating on our list of Oktoberfest events!
