Oktoberfest is a cultural festival organized to unite the community in celebration of German heritage. Launched in 2009, the Halifax Oktoberfest attracts hundreds of locals and visitors alike to the Seaport District to enjoy authentic Bavarian cuisine, beverages, and music along with raising money for Feed Nova Scotia!
This year, be sure to come on down to Pavilion 20 for a night of giant pretzels, cold craft beer, dancing and games! There's the traditional tapping of the cask to kick off the festival, keg bowling, and live music by Die Holzhacker Bub’n and The Roving Steins.
There's even a sweet draw for awesome prize packs at the end of the night. Proceeds from this event go to the German Canadian Association of NS and FEED NOVA SCOTIA. Prosit!
