2nd Annual Hoboken Oktoberfest on October 12 and 13

Oktoberfest Will Feature Beer Garden, Music and Entertainment

and a Kids Village

October 2, 2012 – Hoboken, NJ – Earlier this month, Saints Peter & Paul Church announced the dates and times for the 2nd Annual Hoboken Oktoberfest.

Now featuring a Friday “Beer Garden Preview Night,” Hoboken Oktoberfest will start October 12 from 6 to 10 pm at 404 Hudson Street. It will continue the next day from noon until 10 pm, and in addition to the “all German” beer garden, it will feature food vendors, a DJ spinning music by day, live music by local group “Your Ex-Boyfriends” at night, various entertainment events and a kids village.

“We started Oktoberfest because Hoboken has deep German roots and Saints Peter & Paul was founded by the German community,” said Michael D’Imperio, Organizing Committee member. “We saw this as an opportunity to honor that history while bringing Hoboken together for a fun Fall event.”

D’Imperio said some of the “delicious food” Oktoberfest attendees can look forward to include:

  • “Beer-brats” prepared by Hoboken Gourmet—succulent bratwurst marinated and cooked in beer accompanied by sauerbraten
  • Fresh pierogi—a hard-to-find menu item in Hoboken!
  • Jumbo sausage and peppers delights served by a mobile gastronomic unit
  • Cannolis filled with sweet cream made to order for all dessert lovers

The kids village will also feature:

  • Moon Bounce
  • Inflatable Obstacle Course
  • Inflatable Game Tent
  • Fall arts and crafts projects like Pumpkin Painting, Sand Art & Spin Art

The Oktoberfest sponsors this year include the Hoboken University Medical Center, R Fiore Real Estate, Nash Beverage Distributors and the Hoboken Rotary Club.

“We can all be proud of Oktoberfest’s positive impact in the community. Through the efforts of the volunteers who make the event possible, Oktoberfest brings neighbors together in a fun and friendly atmosphere,” said Msgr. Robert Meyer, Esq, Pastor of Saints Peter & Paul.

Last year, close to 1,000 residents and out-of-towners visited Hoboken Oktoberfest and organizers expect twice that number to attend this years’.

Hoboken Octoberfest 10-15-2011 St. Peter and Paul

St. Peters and Paul’s Church held their first annual Oktoberfest this Saturday October 15th to a good sized crowd in the parking lot of their annex between 4th and 5th Streets and Hudson. The event ran from 12pm-10pm. There was a children’s bouncy castle in the adjacent park as well as a clown and pie throwing with a Stevens fraternity for the kids. After 5pm the kids stuff was closed down and it became a party more for the adults. For the adults Helmers and the Old German Bakery provided authentic German food. There was also a beer tent with Bud light domestic and several Oktoberfest beers available. The volunteers TheBoken spoke to seemed happy with the good sized turnout of hundreds of people and plan on doing this event next year. The proceeds from this event will help the church with its missionary work.

At least two winners picked up their free pitcher from TheBoken’s giveaway contest. If you were a winner and did not pick up your free pitcher please email TheBoken at theboken@gmail.com to make arrangements to pick it up if you are still interested.  Below are photo and video highlights of the event…
