Autumn is here and that means beer festivals! Specifically, the many Oktoberfest celebrations. If you’re in Philadelphia, you’re in a great place for craft beer, delicious food pairings and fun events and fests. Check out these beer events Philadelphia has to offer!
South Street Oktoberfest | September 16
The South Street Oktoberfest hosted by Brauhaus Schmitz is one of the most exciting fall beer events. For the 9th year in a row, the Bavarian restaurant will be celebrating on the 700 block of South Street. A Bavarian buffet will be open from 1 – 6 with 10 German beers available on draught.
Oktoberfest Elmwood Park Zoo | September 9
If you are an animal-lover looking for a craft beer event, then Oktoberfest at the Elmwood Park Zoo in Norristown is where you want to be. Just a short distance away from Center City, there will be over 100 craft beers including everything from local breweries to some international selections. Beer pairings include live music, amazing animals exhibits, and great food! While it’s normally a great idea to bring the kiddos to the zoo, this event is 21+ only.
Midtown Village Fall Festival | October 7
The Midtown Village Fall Festival draws thousands of people to Philly every year. It’s one of the city’s most popular fall events! This family friendly event includes entertainment, shopping, arts & crafts, as well as beer and food vendors.
