Steuben Oktoberfest in New York

Just for one day, I proudly became a German today in honor of my children’s heritage, being part German themselves. I eagerly pulled out the only well tailored dirndl I acquired from a top notch boutique during my visit to Salzburg, Austria few years ago. Alas! I finally found the opportunity to wear it!

My little 5 year old princess, looked ever so adorable in her first dirndl. Together we set off to experience our very first Steuben!

We started off by partaking in the annual parade march on 5th Ave, and tapered off to the after party at the Central Park Summer Stage, where the beer and pretzels was abundant. The event did not disappoint at all. I was reminded of my first Oktoberfest celebration in Munich, Germany few years ago. It was nice to see similar effect here stateside, with everyone dressed the part in various styles and color schemes of dirndls and lederhosen, well fashioned on all ages and genders. I could see the pride and passion on reveler’s faces.

Until next year perhaps, prost! 🍺🍻
