Where to Find the Best Oktoberfest in Philly

The month of October brings lots of exciting fall fun: sweater weather, pumpkin spice and firepit parties. One of the best ways to welcome autumn near your Dalian on the Park apartment is at one of the many fall festivals taking place in and around Philly this month. Some emphasize fashion, others art and still others music—but most have one thing in common: brews! Oktoberfest-themed events abound in the area this month, offering you plenty of opportunities to enjoy some sudsy socializing in the spectacular October weather.

If you’re looking for a fall brewfest with a slightly different spin, check out the Oktoberfest beer garden at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Every Wednesday night, the Great Stair Hall Balcony transforms into a German beer garden, brimming with authentic brews, bites and décor. On the beer side, indulge in pints and beer flights showcasing German-style brews made right here in the region, while snacking on giant Bavarian pretzels and bratwurst. If you register ahead of time, you can grab a flight and a bite for a discounted price.

While all beer gardens offer plenty to see and do, the setting at the PMA takes that a step further. After you hydrate and grab some grub, you can wander throughout the massive museum to take in one of the world’s best collections of art. From centuries-old works from some of history’s most known artists to modern-day, experimental pieces from local artists, the museum offers something for art lovers of all tastes. And once you’ve gotten your fill, you can head back to the beer garden to finish your night on a high note.

As an added bonus, the museum hosts its Oktoberfest event to coincide with pay-what-you-wish evenings—so you can enjoy even more for less! And since the museum is just three blocks from your Dalian on the Park apartment, stroll to and from to save even more dough.
