Prost! Oktoberfest Events

bberbros-01bebd5dvia HVMag – It’s time to bust out your lederhosen and welcome Oktoberfest, a traditional German fall festival that’s perhaps better known to most Americans as the biggest beer fest of the year. The celebration dates back to the early 19th century, intended to celebrate the marriage of  Prince Ludwig of Bavaria and Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen in 1810. Though the original Oktoberfest lasted less than a week (October 12–17​), today the festival is more readily celebrated between mid-September and early October in the U.S. to accommodate weather concerns.

Whether this is your first Oktoberfest or you’re a seasoned sauerkraut-fiend, join us in raising a brew-filled Bavarian bierstein mug to these Oktoberfest events in our region. Cheers — or as the Germans say, “Prost!”

The Tallman Grill, Sparkill

September 29 – October 29, Weekends only

If food is your thing, make no mistake that The Tallman Grill has you covered for some the best in authentic German dining. Every weekend through October, you can find everything from soft pretzels to spaetzel, and practically every kind of wurst in between. Fuel your dancing feet with one of 14 hearty German beers on tap, and grove to live music every Saturday night.
