German-American Steuben Day Parade & Octoberfest (Coming Up in New York)

“Each year in mid September, the city goes a little German. This year the parade will start at noon on Saturday, Sept. 19 at Fifth Avenue and 68th Street, and head up to Fifth to 86th Street. Some participants and viewers will continue the festivities along 86th Street and Second Avenue at some of Yorkville’s bars and restaurants. Others will head to Central Park for Octoberfest (a paid, ticketed event) at Rumsey Playfield (SummerStage). Many German groups from the parade will perform. There will be a variety of German food, beer and wine.”
