Harpoon Octoberfest Vermont
Harpoon Octoberfest at our Windsor brewery is much like our festival of the same name in Boston – nonstop live oompah music, chicken dancing, cake eating, bratwurst, and of course, barrels upon barrels of freshly brewed Harpoon beer. But instead of Boston as the backdrop, you’ve got Vermont’s beautiful upper valley in the peak of foliage season. Fresh beer, radiant fall foliage, and live oompah music…awesome.
On Sunday prior to the Festival, Harpoon will host its annual Harpoon Octoberfest Race, which benefits the Friends of Norris Cotton Cancer Center.
