Where to Find the Best Oktoberfest in Philly

The month of October brings lots of exciting fall fun: sweater weather, pumpkin spice and firepit parties. One of the best ways to welcome autumn near your 1500 Locust apartment is at one of the many fall festivals taking place in and around Philly this month. Some emphasize fashion, others art and still others music—but most have one thing in common: brews! Oktoberfest-themed events abound in the area this month, offering you plenty of opportunities to enjoy some sudsy socializing in the spectacular October weather.

If you’re looking for a fall brewfest with a slightly different spin, check out Pour the Core, one of the biggest cider fests in the region. Held at the Navy Yard, a quick 10-minute ride on the Broad Street Subway from your 1500 Locust apartment, the event features the opportunity to sample more than 75 ciders, beers and wines from dozens of regional makers. Sampling is unlimited so spend a full day sipping and picking your favorites, many of which you can buy to go right on site.

Grab VIP tickets and get in early to have some extra time to hop from table to table with your tasting glass before the crowds start building. While the drinks are the main focus of the day, that’s certainly not all there is to enjoy about Pour the Core. The festival also features hands-on craft stations where you can grab some gifts for family or make a hand-crafted item for your 1500 Locust apartment. When you want a break from sipping, check out any of the handful of gourmet food trucks, where you can snag tacos, ice cream or even a crowd favorite: pizza in a cone!

So clear your schedule for Oct. 19, put on your favorite fall flannel and head down to South Philly for a local tradition that gives you a perfect taste of fall.
