Overview 

When your neighborhood boasts it’s very own Oktoberfest celebration, that makes October more than just a month. To go with our local celebration, we bring out acclaimed performers, food trucks, vendors, and carnival games—all lining the well-traveled streets of Ridge Avenue. Entering our 7th-year Roxtoberfest is a well-loved neighborhood tradition.
