In 2016 the Roxtoberfest HomeBrew Competition returns to recognize and celebrate the most talented home brewers in the Philadelphia region. Interested participants will submit a BJCP sanctioned style beer 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 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 Philadelphia's premiere family-friendly Oktoberfest event. Special thanks this year to the Philadelphia Folksong Society for coordinating this year's musical performances.
