What better way to celebrate the beginning of the fall than to join a Pelham Oktoberfest Celebration on Saturday, Oct. 5 from 4:00-8:00pm at B&B’s Fifth Ave Pub! Oktoberfest is an annual German celebration of beer, running from late September to the first week of October in Munich. The festival is one of the largest and most famous events in Germany, with more than six million people from around the world attending the event every year. This year, the Junior League of Pelham is bringing the Bavarian spirit to Pelham – for all Pelhamites to enjoy.

This event is not to be missed! B&B’s beer tent will be tapping various types of German beers served in traditional Oktoberfest beer steins. The festival wouldn’t be complete without the sounds of traditional German music and feasting upon an incredible variety of traditional German foods: jagerschnitzel, sauerbraten, schweinshaxe, and rinderrouladen…and did we mention beer?

To partake in the festivities, you must be 21 years or older. Tickets are $65 per person in advance, or you may purchase tickets at the door for $80 per person. The price of admission includes unlimited food, beer and an Oktoberfest stein for you to take home. To purchase tickets visit www.jlpelham.org or mail a check payable to The Junior League of Pelham to 901 Pelhamdale Avenue, Pelham, NY 10803, Attn: Assistant Treasurer. For questions, please contact Kelly Brown at 914-740-4551.

This is a celebration with a good cause. Your participation in this event will go to provide vital support to our community partners via the Junior League of Pelham’s outreach programs aimed at improving the lives of families, and promoting the enrichment of Pelham and neighboring communities.

Practice your chicken dance and get ready for a great night celebrating with your friends and neighbors at Pelham’s first Oktoberfest! Willkommen!
