These are the biggest Oktoberfest 2021 celebrations in NYC

It’s all guten!

Munich may have canned this year’s Oktoberfest celebration, but New York City bars have picked up the slack — and then some.

Local watering holes are making the Bavarian festival their own, with everything from pig roasts to spunky lederhosen-wearing competitions. And, of course, there will be beer, lots and lots of beer.

From a block party at the Brooklyn Navy Yard on Saturday, Oct. 2, to a backyard bash at the Bronx Brewery on Saturday, Sept. 18, there are tons of can’t-miss celebrations happening for Oktoberfest 2021. Whether you’re looking for lagers and pilsners or pretzels and sausages, options abound.

Here are five Oktoberfests happening in NYC that you just don’t want to miss this fall.

Often billed as the marquee Oktoberfest event in New York, this outdoor bar at the South Street Seaport hits all the right notes for a fun day of drinking.

Currently running seven days a week until Sunday, Oct. 24, Watermark offers massive German-style brats and pretzels, steins upon steins of beer, games such as pingpong and cornhole — plus breathtaking views of the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan skyline from a spacious outdoor setup.

You can celebrate Oktoberfest with beers and delicious sausages every day of the week at the Williamsburg hall, but Saturdays it’s a real party. Every weekend through the end of October will open with a ceremonial wooden keg and a traditional pig roast. Other highlights will include live German music and mug-holding competitions, plus lots of guests and staff in both lederhosen and dirndls.

From this Saturday through Sunday, Oct. 3, Clinton Hall is the go-to spot for drinking and eating competitions.

Throughout its various locations across the city, the beer hall will be hosting pretzel-eating and stein-holding contests, along with a headliner lederhosen challenge of “who wore it best” for a $250 gift card happening on Saturday, Sept. 25, at all locations.

For those who prefer to just kick back and watch, there will be Radeburger Oktoberfest pints for $5 and a newly crafted bratwurst sandwich to try.

Raise a glass beneath the sleek Meatpacking District hotel. The Standard Biergarten will be recruiting breweries from near and far to celebrate Oktoberfest on select Wednesdays in late September and October.

First up is Vermont’s von Trapp Brewing on Sept. 28. The brewery is owned by the family who inspired the hit film “The Sound of Music,” so that movie will be playing throughout the evening, and there will also be ceramic mug giveaways.

Then, Brooklyn’s Sixpoint Brewery takes over on Oct. 13 and 20 for live German music, beer foam, pretzel necklaces and tons of ales.
