While there may be some version of an Oktoberfest around each corner of New England, I'm not sure you can find one celebrating a schnitzel toss, like Mount Snow's annual Ocktoberfest this weekend, October 9-10.
Mount Snow’s Oktoberfest celebration is paired with their annual Harvest Art and Craft show, bringing even more bang to your buck. Besides the aforementioned schnitzel flinging, this Oktoberfest comes complete with authentic, live German music, German foods, fun games and activities for all ages.
But let's cut to the chase and talk about the drink. Favorite New England Breweries will be back with their fall line-ups to accompany the German Style beers that include Beck's, Spaten and more. There will be many Oktoberfest drafts, Pumpkin flavored IPAs, Cider selections and many more libations. All adult admission includes a souvenir stein and your first drink.
Inside the Main Base Lodge, artisans and crafters from across the region bring their paintings, woodwork, fleece, photography, fudge, salsa, kids’ crafts and more to the annual Harvest Art & Craft Show.
Advanced Oktoberfest tickets and Lodging Packages are available if you contact Mount Snow direct. Oktoberfest Admission for 21+ Adults: 1-day is $20 and a 2-day pass is $30. Under 21 pays $12 for 1 day, and $20 for both days. Children ages 5 and under can enjoy hours of bouncing, painting, cheering and dancing for free.
