Toronto Oktoberfest is Toronto’s authentic Oktoberfest celebration, inspired by traditions started in Munich, Germany over 200 years ago.
Visitors will experience the best in Bavarian fare and exclusively European and German biers.
Link arms and dance polka with new-found friends, sit down and mingle at long traditional Festhalle-style tables, participate in one of the many Oktoberfest contests or games or take a picture at the Toronto Oktoberfest photo cutout.
