FAIR HAVEN: OKTOBERFEST IN NOVEMBER

Oktoberfest_1Rescheduled due to early October’s heavy weather, Fair Haven’s Oktoberfest returns for its fourth annual edition this Saturday evening, November 14.

Revised and re-posted because this event was rescheduled from its originally planned date of October 3 because of rain.

It’s a big-tent happening that exists very much in the autumn moment, from the traditional German food and selection of bier, to the sense of old-world revelry that dares to make merry in the face of the encroaching chill. But at the same time, Fair Haven’s Oktoberfest event is one in which the warm good vibes ripple throughout the calendar year; touching every aspect of the borough’s quality of life.

FAIR HAVEN: A YEAR-ROUND OKTOBERFEST

Oktoberfest_1Fair Haven’s Oktoberfest event returns for its fourth annual edition this Saturday evening, rain or shine…or shall we say Rhein or Stein?

It’s a big-tent happening that exists very much in the October moment, from the traditional German food and selection of bier, to the sense of old-world revelry that dares to make merry in the face of the encroaching chill. But at the same time, Fair Haven’s Oktoberfest event is one in which the warm good vibes ripple throughout the calendar year; touching every aspect of the borough’s quality of life.

Back for a fourth annual edition, and presented by the nonprofit Foundation of Fair Haven, the “rain or shine” evening returns to the outdoor area 786 River Road (the municipal lot adjacent to Smart Start Preschool) for a four-hour fest that runs from 6:30 to 10:30 pm. Despite the location, it’s a grownup affair for those 21 and over; a chance to sample a smorgasbord of seasonal brews and sangria while enjoying diversions that include, in the words of Foundation president and borough councilwoman Susan Sorensen, “authentic Oktoberfest food, a great local band, RipTide, providing music — and, back by popular demand, Pong Tournament.”

[UPDATE, September 29: Because of rain in forecast for Saturday, this event has been rescheduled for Saturday, October 22, and starting and ending an hour earlier than originally planned.]

fh-trucktoberfest-logoOK, so the name turns out not to be as original as organizers thought, given than there was a Trucktoberfest at Monmouth Park less than two weeks ago.

Still, when the Fair Haven version of Trucktoberfest rolls into Fair Haven Fields this Saturday, it will mark the borough’s debut food festival, one with the hipster cred of chow served through a stainless-steel trimmed window.

FAIR HAVEN: RAISE A MUG FOR FUTURE DAYS

The event is all about Oktoberfest — from the authentic German food to the “unlimited mugs” of beer, to the festive mood that dares to make merry in the face of the encroaching chill. But when Fair Haven hosts its annual seasonal celebration on Saturday, October 4, it will be an occasion that looks ahead to future Fair Haven Days throughout the calendar year.

A fundraiser for the riverside borough’s slate of special events, Oktoberfest returns to its tented area at 786 River Road (the parking lot adjacent to Smart Start Preschool) for a night of revelry between the hours of 6:30 to 10:30 pm. An entry fee of $25 allows attendees 21 years and over to enjoy the food, live music (by Late 4 Lunch), with “authentic Oktoberfest beverages” and sangria available for purchase by the glass, or the popular unlimited-mug option ($5 charge for souvenir mug). There will also be “adult games” to be announced.

FAIR HAVEN: FROM WHITECAPS TO BEER FOAM

Rowers from Christian Brothers Academy headed landward at Fair Haven Yacht Works, above, after winds of 23 miles per hour prompted the cancellation of what was to have been Fair Haven’s first regatta for high school crews Saturday.

Still, the final event of the borough’s centennial celebration went off as planned that night. An Oktoberfest celebration, held at the Smart School Preschool on River Road, prompted one attendee to don his lederhosen, above right, and other displays of civic mirth. More photos after the jump.  (Click to enlarge)
