Cheers to Fall with great tasting beer!


Warm pretzels, cold beer and a lot of laughs

Screen Shot 2014-09-25 at 4.53.43 PMThere was perfect weather for families to enjoy Newburyport’s 2014 Oktoberfest.

Sponsored by the Greater Newburyport Chamber of Commerce, the event was held at Cashman Park in downtown Newburyport and featured rides for kids and free face painting. Music by the Oberlaendler Hofbrau Band accompanied the day.

Various local vendors served pulled pork, chocolate-dipped strawberries and German food such as Bratwurst and Knockwurst, while beer was of course available for a $5 donation.

Beers served included Spaten Oktoberfest, Blue Point Oktoberfest, Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat, Goose Island Endless IPA, and our favorite, the Johnny Appleseed Hard Cider.

$10 from each VIP Card purchase at Oktoberfest was also donated to the Chamber’s Beautification Program.

If you didn’t have a chance to pick one up, you can order online at and select the Newburyport Chamber from the drop down menu of our VIP Community Partners today, and start saving 100’$ on Best of Newburyport Places to Eat, Shop, Stay & Experience.
