If you’re not traveling to Munich this fall but still want to experience Oktoberfest, check out Oktoberfest NYC (oktober-fest.nyc). The event runs for six weekends, from September 13 to October 20, from 11 a.m. until midnight–providing ample opportunities to enjoy everything you love about Oktoberfest right at home. Held at Watermark Waterfront Bar, the fest will treat attendees to authentic German beer and traditional Oktoberfest food, including brats and giant pretzels, all while offering picturesque views of the Brooklyn Skyline. Oktoberfest NYC provides fun activities for the whole family, and encourages prospective guests to start working out now in preparation for their “epic” stein-holding contest, a traditional Bavarian strength contest that involves holding a full one-liter beer stein out in front of your body for as long as you can. Traditional dress is encouraged and entrance is free with an online RSVP. Beer and food tickets can also be purchased online in advance to receive priority access (though they can be purchased at the event as well).
