Autumn in Boston brings cooler temperatures, changing leaves, and, of course, fun fall activities. From apple picking just outside the city and plenty of places to pick up your very own pumpkin to the (rescheduled) Boston Marathon, there’s plenty to do in and around the city this season.
But of all the seasonal events in the city, Harpoon Octoberfest is one of the most well-known and highly anticipated. Read on to learn more about this can’t-miss event along with the best places to stay that will put you within walking distance of all the action.
About Harpoon Brewery Octoberfest
Harpoon Brewery, located in the Seaport, is one of Boston’s most popular breweries. Along with the large taproom that’s open year round, Harpoon also hosts a variety of seasonal 21+ events on their property, including Octoberfest (which also happens to be their largest annual festival).
This year, Harpoon Brewery Octoberfest is being held Friday, Oct. 1 and Saturday, Oct. 2. Under the open air tents you’ll find many of the brewerie’s best staple brews along with seasonal fan favorites and a one-of-a-kind beer to commemorate the events. As you enjoy a pint you’ll be transported to Bavaria with live oompah music, stein-hoisting competitions, and pretzel eating contests that you also may be tempted to join.
Due to the popularity of the event, it’s highly encouraged to purchase tickets ahead of time to guarantee admission. This year, the event is going to be cashless and all guests and staff will be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to attend or work the event.
For more information on these guidelines, band line-up, and purchasing tickets, check out the official Harpoon Brewery Octoberfest website.
