Oktoberfest is Coming to East Providence

The waterfront celebration of beer, brats and lederhosen returns to Bold Point Park


Get out your lederhosen for the state’s largest annual celebration of Oktoberfest. Festival-goers will enjoy a little piece of Bavaria right across the river from the East Side, at Bold Point Park in East Providence, where they can grab a beer and a bratwurst while toasting to the start of the fall season. The Biergarten will feature over three dozen specialty beer selections as well as authentic German foods and live entertainment from German-American band Spitze. For beer-lovers with a competitive spirit, you’ll also find festivities like the Stein Hoisting competition, Survivor Flip Cup and Beer Pong. This not-to-be-missed event will take place on October 7, with a collective “Prost” (German for “cheers”) at 1pm to kick off the day’s festivities.
