Oktoberfest 2023 Each fall we dust off our lederhosen, fire up the oompah band and enjoy a tall mug of German beer at the Whiteface Mountain Oktoberfest. Mark your calendars for the weekend-long, Bavarian-style celebration with authentic music, dancing, food and beer—rated one of the 5 Must-Visit Oktoberfests in North America by SKI Magazine! Featuring music by die Schlauberger and The Adlers in the Main Entertainment Tent, Schachtelgebirger Musikanten (Scha-Musi) in the Cloudspin Bar & Grill, the 3 Alphorns, and the Alpenland Taenzer dancers. This is a family-friendly event with activities for all ages including arts and crafts and scenic gondola rides. 2022/23 Season Passholders receive FREE Admission + Gondola Rides on Sunday, Oct 1. Juniors ages 12 & under can also enjoy FREE admission both days of the festival.
