Event Details

Help us celebrate our 7th Oktoberfest here in Somerville! 

Saturday, Sept. 28th from Noon until 9 pm. 

Located on North Bridge St. between Main st and High st. in Downtown Somerville

Another annual Oktoberfest Celebration brought to you by Tapastre & Project PUB. Eat, drink and be merry! Local craft beers and traditional Oktoberfest brews will be on hand, along with plenty of food from local restaurants and live music from awesome bands throughout the day.

We will be featuring local Oktoberfest brews, along with fall seasonals, pumpkin beers, sangria, mead and cider, as well as a collection of craft beers for those not feeling the Marzen style.

Along with our giant beer pong, we will also feature our annual Stein Holding Contest, a live Brews & Brushes painting experience and our Brat Eating Competition.

We will also be featuring pumpkin & face painting for the little ones.

$8 if purchased in advance
$10 at the door or $8 with a canned pet food donation. 
Designated drivers and those under 21, entry is FREE with a canned pet food donation.

Entry includes an Oktoberfest stein while supplies last, and music all day long! 

This is a cash only event.
Purchase tickets in advance via Eventbrite! 
Please drink responsibly.

Each participant in the Stein Holding or Masskrugstemmen Contest will stand in line and raise their full 1-liter stein so that their arm is extended straight out in front of their shoulder. They must hold this position as long as possible. Each full stein weighs in around 5 lbs, so this is not an easy task. It may not sound like a lot, but holding it with an extended arm for a couple minutes will have you feeling the burn! Winner is whoever keeps their arm extended the longest! These contests will be running throughout the day so keep an eye out to sign up.

Brat Eating Competitions will happen on Saturday at 6 pm. A maximum of 10 people will be seated at a table with plates full of Bratwurst. Winner is the person who has finished the most in 3 minutes. 

Please remember to always drink responsibly!

Rain date is Sunday, Sept 29th.
