Harvard Square’s Oktoberfest is taking place this Sunday. Go out and enjoy the nice fall weekend before they are gone. In it’s 36th year it is a big staple of the fall events calendar in Cambridge. To bring the Oktoberfest activities up a notch they are adding a “beer hall” inside the Beat Hotel. No it’s not a hotel since it appears to be a brasserie and bar located on Brattle St. in Harvard Square.
What follows are some of the details for the event:
Harvard Square’s 36th Annual Oktoberfest!
Sunday, October 12, 2014 – 12:00pm to 6:00pm
The Harvard Square Business announces the 36th Annual Oktoberfest and legendary HONK! Parade on Sunday, October 12th, 2014. Annually attended by over 200,000 people, Harvard Square’s Oktoberfest features food from all over the world, arts, crafts, vintage goods, sidewalk sales and one-of-a-kind gifts.
Oktoberfest in Harvard Square was started 1978 by the late Frank Cardullo, a Square mover and shaker and owner of the renowned Wursthaus, which served up traditional German food from 1917 until it closed in 1996. The early festivals were in keeping with the old world customs. Over the years, however, the festival has taken on a most discerningly Cambridge vibe to become an Oktoberfest unlike any other.
