2: Four Peaks Oktoberfest in Tempe
Oct. 7th – 9th
Oktoberfest isn’t complete without beer, so it’s a good thing this event is hosted by Four Peaks, a local brewery in Tempe. But that’s not all you’ll find at the Four Peaks Oktoberfest—you can enjoy live entertainment and amusement rides, as well as mouthwatering German foods and desserts. Oktoberfest runs on Friday, 10/7 from 5pm to 12am; Saturday, 10/8 from 10am to 12am; and Sunday, 10/9 from 10 am to 8 pm.
Kids are also invited to join in on the fun with Kinderfest, which is also hosted by Four Peaks and features carnival games, a Hansel and Gretel village, and more activities for kids of all ages. Kinderfest runs October 7th from 5pm – 8pm, October 8th from 11am – 8pm, and October 9th from 10am – 6 pm.
