Once a year, Whiteface dusts off its lederhosen, fires up the oompah band, and enjoys a tall mug of German beer. Oktoberfest is a weekend-long celebration of Bavarian culture complete with authentic music, dancing, food, and beer.

But it's not just about eating and drinking! You'll find complimentary rides for kids and adults, craft vendors, and discounted trips on the Cloudsplitter Gondola to the summit of Little Whiteface. The views from Little Whiteface will make it pretty clear why fall in the Adirondacks is something worth getting close to.
