Oktoberfest is a fall celebration of music, food and community held in the New Brunswick City Center. Enjoy a variety of local and traditional food, craft brews to German beers and vendors that will keep your interest, including Harvest Moon Brewery & Cafe, Blackthorn Restaurant & Irish Pub, Destination Dogs, Due Mari, Tavern on George, Señor Pincho Latin Grill, and Maglione's Italian Ices.

Bring your friends and family to enjoy an afternoon of free kids' activities, music, games, a photo booth and so much more!

Party-goers are encouraged to get into the Oktoberfest spirit by wearing their best dirndl or lederhosen. The fun continues with live music throughout the day including rock, acoustic, and traditional German music!

Let’s raise our steins and toast to cold brews in the Biergarten with local establishments offering craft and seasonal beers for purchase. We will be turning on the taps, along George Street, from 12 noon – 5:00 PM. ID’s required.

No entry fee required. Open to the public, Rain or shine, food and beverages available for purchase, ID’s required and no one under the age of 21 allowed in Biergarten.

The music line-up will keep you entertained all afternoon and feature a combination of performances of a broad mix for all age groups.
