Every Actually Great Oktoberfest in NYC, Now in One Calendar

Published On 09/18/2015 Published On 09/18/2015

Contrary to what the word implies, Oktoberfest does not take place in October. Well, it does for some of it, but it actually kicks off in September. As in this month. As in you have a lot of really, really large beers to drink very soon, especially now that you’ve got this master calendar of actually great Oktoberfest events filled with liter steins, lederhosen, and brats.

Mmm... brats.
