Overview 

When your neighborhood boasts it’s very own Oktoberfest brew, that makes October more than just a month. To go with our local beer, we bring out acclaimed performers, food trucks, vendors, and carnival games—all lining the well-traveled streets of Ridge Avenue. So though Roxtoberfest has only been around a few years so far, it’s already a well-loved neighborhood tradition.
