It’s tradition every September through October to attend the Oktoberfest events in the valley. Although it may seem a little late to even write about Oktoberfest when some of the events have already taken place in September, but nonetheless it is still going on in the valley and being that it is now the month of October I decided to still write about the remaining events. Oktoberfest is yet to be over. There are still some GREAT festivities of Oktoberfest that are going on throughout the valley and we are here to tell you which ones are totally worth it!  


Flagstaff Oktoberfest  

Although the weather is slowly changing around the valley in Phoenix, what better way to spend Oktoberfest but in Flagstaff where it is already cool?! Flagstaff will have its annual Arizona Oktoberfest on Saturday at Wheeler Park from 11:00AM to 8:00PM. Flagstaff’s Oktoberfest event will not only be a fun experience for all, but the event will support the Flagstaff Sunrise Lions Club.
