Update: Roxtoberfest Rescheduled
Saturday, October 10, 2015
The steep hills of Roxborough will come alive with the sound of music and the taste of our neighborhood’s own brew of Oktoberfest during the 3rd Annual Roxtoberfest celebration on Ridge Avenue in Roxborough.
Join the Roxborough community for a fun-filled day with the kids, beer tasting from local home brewers, beer garden games and much more. Music is not far, the Roxtoberfest Showcase Stage will feature regionally acclaimed performers.
Add food trucks, vendors, carnival games, a dunk tank and local Roxborough businesses and you have the promise of a great tradition for everyone in the Roxborough community to enjoy.
Roxtoberfest Updated Showcase Stage Lineup
Oktoberfest [äk-tōber-fest]: A traditional autumn festival held in Munich, Germany, every October that features beer-drinking and merrymaking.
For The Family
In 2015 we launch the first Roxtoberfest HomeBrew Competition to recognize and celebrate the most talented home brewers in the Philadelphia region. Interested participants will submit an Oktoberfest, Autumn Seasonal Beer or American Pale Ale to be judged by a panel composed of three highly qualified Roxtoberfest Beer Judges. Following a series of hoppy and delicious tastings judges will select one winner from the home brew community. The highest scoring beer as appropriate to the style will be named the 2015 Roxtoberfest HomeBrew Champion. Home brew samples will be available to Roxtoberfest attendees at the event. Are you a local home brewer and interested in submitting a taste of your favorite batch? Find the registration information on how to get involved here Roxtoberfest HomeBrew Competition Form.
Roxtoberfest On-street Breweries
The Roxtoberfest fall street festival concept was developed by the Roxborough Development Corporation and Advent. The event is unique in that it was initiated by a non-profit community development corporation, the Roxborough Development Corporation, and will be operated with the help of local community residents. This year we thank, and all those businesses that are helping to make Roxtoberfest what Roxborough deserves. The Roxtoberfest is a free family-friendly event.
