Oktoberfest in Central Park
September 16 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
For the largest Oktoberfest celebration in New York, make your way to Oktoberfest in Central Park (9/16). Once there, you’ll find pitchers of beer, bratwursts and other traditional German fare, live music, and even the ninth-annual National Masskrugstemmen Championship, a stein-holding competition (yes, really) that pits burly beer lovers against one another in a battle to see who can hold a stein the longest. Sound easy? There are official rules, and if you think you have what it takes to beat the record set last year of 19 minutes and 15 seconds, get thee to Central Park!
