Complete with live music, dancing, great food, and beer, Oktoberfest is a long-standing tradition welcoming fall visitors in authentic Alpine style.
In fact, Ski Magazine rates the Whiteface festival among the five “must-visit” Oktoberfest events in North America. The event is held Saturday, October 1 from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm and Sunday, October 2 from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Each fall we dust off our lederhosen, fire up the oompah band and enjoy a tall mug of German beer at the Whiteface Mountain Oktoberfest. Mark your calendars for the weekend-long, Bavarian-style celebration with authentic music, dancing, food and beer—rated one of the 5 Must-Visit Oktoberfests in North America by SKI Magazine! Featuring music by headliners die Schlauberger in the Main Entertainment Tent, Schachtelgebirger Musikanten (Scha-Musi) in the Cloudspin Bar & Grill, the 3 Alphorns, and the Adlers dancers. This is a family-friendly event with activities for all ages including arts and crafts and scenic gondola rides.
