With the coming of September comes the commencement of Oktoberfest, not only in Germany, but in many towns around the world. In the USA, Oktoberfests tend to be held in towns with historical elements to them, like Sleepy Hollow, NY. Or, if you live in southern New Jersey, you may have heard of Smithville, NJ, better known as “Historic Smithville.” Locals know that Smithville loves their Halloween-related events, a result of the owners of the punk store Underground being so involved with the historical town. Just like Sleepy Hollow, Smithville commences their fall and Halloween activities with an Oktoberfest.
Smithville’s Oktoberfest is a legendary event for the town, held for two days straight, always on the first Saturday and Sunday of October. So, make sure to head over to Smithville, NJ for their fall-filled and delicious celebration, including 100+ unique juried crafters, live music, and one of a kind food.
