Contrary to its moniker, Oktoberfest, the annual autumnal celebration anchored in Munich, Germany, with satellite festivities all over the globe, kicks off in September. Lucky for you, New York City hosts some of the best boozy, musical sausage fests in the world. This year’s events include weeks-long waterside parties and brewery bashes—all with plenty of German (and local!) beer to start your fall eating and drinking plans out right.
Though some of the festivities have already wrapped up by this point, there are still a bunch of fun ways to celebrate the season. Here's where to keep the party going in October.
