Philadelphia, Brauhaus Schmitz saved the best Oktoberfest of the season for last!

Staged in the sprawling 23rd Street Armory, the fest includes three sessions, each able to accommodate 1,500 revelers for one of the biggest beer-drinking events to hit Philadelphia and one of the most authentic Oktoberfest parties in the United States.
The fortress-like structure located at 22 South 23rd Street in West Center City (only a 5-minute walk from 30th Street Station) will mimic an authentic Munich festival tent. The 16,000 square foot space will be decked out with Bavarian blue and white ceilings, authentic festival tables and benches imported from Germany, as well as a lofted stage area for musical acts, which will include the Brauhaus regulars The Heimatklange Band Friday & Saturday night and Melina & the Oompahs on Saturday afternoon.
Traditional Oktoberfest food will be provided by Valentin Bay and beer will be provided by the world famous Paulaner Brauerei München. This two-day festival will give guests the opportunity to celebrate at one of three separate four-hour sessions each accommodating up to 1,500 people. There truly is nothing currently like this in the entire region or state. This event draws attendees from Philadelphia, Southeast Pennsylvania, Baltimore, Washington D.C., New York City, New Jersey, Delaware and beyond.
