Prost!

Get a taste of the Bavarian Alps right here at Loon Mountain during White Mountain Oktoberfest, the region's largest celebration of German food, drink, and music. This two-day festival perfectly coincides with fall foliage season, so you'll enjoy beer and brats alongside stunning views of New Hampshire's White Mountains.

An Oompah band will provide the soundtrack to a stein-hoisting contest, keg toss, and kids' activities–including a root beer keg toss. It's the perfect chance to reconnect with old friends and make new ones during the weekend's full lineup of activities and entertainment.

Indoor/Outdoor Beer Garden

Adults will enjoy a range of seasonal beers from Samuel Adams at an indoor/outdoor beer garden. In addition to sampling Samuel Adams classics like Oktoberfest and New England IPA shandies and ciders from Angry Orchard, and Truly Spiked & Sparkling will also be available.

Pro Tip: Stop by the ID Check, show your valid ID to get a wristband before you head to get a drink.

Glass Steins Available

Celebrate properly with a 25oz. glass steins filled with your favorite beverage. Steins are limited—purchase yours at the event.

Live Music

The hills will be alive with the sound of Oompah! Guests will clap along and dance to the Eastern Sound Orchestra as they play polkas, waltzes, and other German-style favorites.

Fun & Games

White Mountain Oktoberfest wouldn't be the same without a full lineup of fun games and activities for all ages. Adults ages 21+ will flex their forearms during the Samuel Adams Stein Hoisting contest, the Stein Carryin', Keg Rollin' Relay Race, and the weekend's marquee event, the Keg Toss.

Kids can create all day at the Craft & Coloring Table, and also get in on the action with the Root Beer Keg Toss and more family fun.
