Westoberfest Arrives October 15. We’ll Drink To That!

Oktoberfest: It’s not just for Germans with huge steins anymore.

Westport’s version — “Westoberfest” — returns to downtown 2 weeks from yesterday (Saturda, October 15, 2 p.m., Elm Street).

There is (of course) a wide selection of local and regional brews. But the Westport Downtown Association-sponsored event also features food (from Walrus Alley, Manna Toast, Kneads, Nit Noi, Dough Girls and Brigy Bites) and music (Amber Anchor).

A family area will host a pumpkin giveaway, with Artists Collective of Westport members on hand to help kids decorate them.

MoCA Westport adds a “decorate-your-tote” activity, while Earthplace will have seed bomb making and animal artifacts. (I’m not sure what either of those are, but I’m sure your kids will love them.)

Westober family activities are free. The craft tasting area — with dozens of offerings — runs from 2 to 5 p.m. Click here for tickets, or purchase them on-site (for $10 more).

See you there. Lederhosen is optional.
