SPECIAL EVENT | Irondequoit Oktoberfest 

Beer, dancing, and lederhosen: Oktoberfest, the 206-year-old German celebration, has found its way to Irondequoit for the 29th year. Across two weekends, Oktoberfest will celebrate German tradition — with a little Irish culture on Sunday, September 10. Seasonal beers from local breweries and national sponsors will be sold as attendees party under the big tent with performers like Hilby, "the Skinny German Juggle Boy," and polka band Golden Keys (both this Friday), and Andy Cooney, Sisters of Murphy, UR Celtic, and more on Saturday.

The Irondequoit Oktoberfest takes place at Camp Eastman, 1558 Lake Shore Boulevard, rain or shine, on Friday, September 9, and Saturday, September 10. The festival's second weekend is Friday, September 16, and Saturday, September 17. Tickets are $10 at the gate. Children under 12 get in for free when accompanied by an adult. On Friday, September 16, from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., tickets are $6. For more information, visit oktoberfestny.com.
