2014 Harpoon Octoberfest
Octoberfest in Boston was the very first festival we threw here at the brewery back in 1990. More than two decades and thousands of oompah songs later, Harpoon Octoberfest has become a beloved New England fall celebration - and this year, we celebrate its 25th anniversary! Join us October 3rd & 4th to celebrate with fall Harpoon beers, bratwursts, chicken dancing and German chocolate cake-eating contests. We'll be toasting to 25 years of Octoberfest while oompah music takes over South Boston. We hope you and your friends will join us to celebrate!
