Dancing in the Streets in Bronxville at First Annual Oktoberfest; See Photos PDF Print Email

alt

By Nicole Tuck, Director, Bronxville Chamber of Commerce


Oct. 17, 2018:  Sunday, October 7, marked the first annual Bronxville Oktoberfest. Hundreds of people came out, filing long tables along Park Place. The weather was perfect for dancing to The Polka Brothers, who entertained the crowd with cover songs set to Polka music.  

Local merchants provided food and beverages, which brought a festive feel to the streets of Bronxville. Pete’s Park Place Tavern set the scene by dressing the part in their lederhosen and serving German food and Oktoberfest Beer. The Taco Project made a grand appearance and was a welcome addition with their tacos and corn (they will have a permanent home on Pondfield soon). Ladle of Love served traditional hot pretzels and “Beer Stew” with craft beer provided by Bronxville’s Beer Noggin. Dobbs & Bishop was on hand with individual cheese plates. Found Herbal saved the day with energy shots and “Hangover Tea.” JC Fogarty’s grilled a variety of meat on the street.

Games of giant Jenga, corn hole, hopscotch, and giant ping pong were enjoyed by children and their parents. Merit Auto Body and Bronxville Motors donated beer steins for Oktoberfest goers to enjoy and keep as a reminder of the fun festival.

The turnout was bigger than anticipated and a second band played on Park Place until 7:00 pm. The Chamber is planning to build on the success of this event in 2019.

A special thank-you to the event sponsors, our local merchants that love our community: Pete’s Park Place Tavern, Merit Auto Body, Bronxville Motors, JC Fogarty’s, The Taco Project, Mrs. Morgan’s Flower Shop, Paws and Play Pet Resort, Ladle of Love, and Found Herbal.

If you missed the Oktoberfest 2018, mark your calendar for the Sunday of Columbus Day weekend 2019. The Polka Brothers will return to Park Place.
