Boston's Best Oktoberfests

If you’re into Oktoberfest – the celebration of German culture, music, and beer – then the Battery Wharf Hotel wants to introduce you to Boston’s best festivals. Sam Adams sponsors Oktoberfest Boston 2016 on October 8th, an event featuring two stages of live music, beer tasting, contests, and games.  Musical guests include Elephante, Kevin Markey, and DJ Tone Terra. It’s an event benefiting a great cause too, as proceeds will be donated to low-income families struggling to pay their children's tuition. Another option is the Oktoberfest at Harvard Square, on October 9th. This will be the 38th edition, which averages crowds of more than 200,000. It’s known for its HONK! Parade and features vendors from all the over world. Finally, check out the Craft Beer Fest, on October 16th, where beer aficionados gather to sample the season’s best pumpkin brews, German lagers, and hard apple ciders.
