Oktoberfests, Applefests, and Beer Dinners This Month


October wouldn’t be complete without the Hunter Mountain Oktoberfest, which runs every weekend from September 26 until October 18. Beer lovers can head to the northern Catskills for a weekend of authentic German and German-American entertainment. Expect a sea of lederhosen, steins full of the finest libations, and a knackwurst or two. (www.huntermtn.com)
