Put on your lederhosen and cue the polka music, it’s the 9th annual Oktoberfest organized by the German School of Brooklyn.

Join the German School of Brooklyn as we celebrate the 9th annual Oktoberfest. This year the family friendly party will be held from 2-5 pm on October 1st at Taco Vista on Governors Island. Tickets must be purchased ahead of time because they will include a delicious German themed buffet and we need to know how much food to prepare!

Bake sale, coffee and a beer stein holding competition will be ticketed activities. Tickets for activities will be available for purchase on site. Activities for children include face painting, popcorn, cotton candy and more!
