Sunnyside Gardens Park will be hosting its annual Oktoberfest in two weeks time, complete with a biergarten, an arts and crafts fair, and its ever-popular pumpkin patch.

The park’s picnic grove will once more be transformed into a biergarten, where guests can enjoy award-winning German-styled beer while listening to live music. Traditional German food will also be available.

The Sunnyside Flea, the arts and crafts fair, will be held at the park at the same time, and will feature work from local artists and crafters. Past events have seen about 20 vendors selling handmade items.

The event includes carnival rides, face painters, crafts for kids, and a sprawling pumpkin patch with roughly 1,000 pumpkins.

Oktoberfest draws visitors from across the city, with about 2,000 festival-goers expected.

This year’s festivities, with free admission and open to the public, will take place on Oct. 6 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Sunnyside Gardens Park, located at 48-21 39th Ave. The date, however, could be shifted due to inclement weather.

Organizers are still seeking arts and crafts vendors for the event. For more information, visit

I wonder what award-winning German-styled beer they’ll serve. I’ve been enjoying Brooklyn Oktoberfest this past week- if they get a few kegs of this beer I’ll definitely show up!
