I attended the 2nd annual 23rd Armory Oktoberfest over Columbus Day Weekend with 4 sessions to choose from.
The fortress-like structure located at 22 South 23rd Street in West Center City (only a 5-minute walk from 30th Street Station) will mimic an authentic Munich festival tent.
The 16,000 square foot space will be decked out with Bavarian blue & white ceilings, authentic festival tables and benches imported from Germany, as well as a lofted stage area for musical acts, which will include the Alex Meixner Band and Brauhaus regulars The Heimatklange Band.
