Collaborative Oktoberfest planned for downtown Niagara Falls USA


Mon, Sep 9th 2019 01:50 pm

It’s time to raise your glasses and give “Prost,” as members of the Downtown Niagara Falls Business Association (DNFBA) host a collaborative Oktoberfest celebration on Saturday, Sept. 28.

The German-themed activities will be held throughout several DNFBA member locations and compliment Old Falls Street’s 10th annual Oktoberfest outdoor street festival, complete with German-themed food, beer, decorated tents and live music by the German American musicians.

All participating venues are within walking distance of Old Falls Street.

In addition, The Sheraton Niagara Falls (300 Third St.) and The Giacomo Hotel (222 First St.) are offering special Oktoberfest pricing on overnight stays on Sept. 28. Guests should call the Sheraton at 716-285-3361 or The Giacomo at 716-299-0200 and mention “Oktoberfest” to receive the special rates.

“Throughout the years, Old Falls Street’s Oktoberfest was sponsored by the Downtown Niagara Falls Business Association,” said Susan Swiatkowski, tourism development manager at Destination Niagara USA and DNFBA secretary. “This year, in addition to Old Falls Street’s outdoor festival, many of our association members are working to keep the celebration going within their own establishments. We hope this new approach attracts a wider audience and entices guests to stay longer, possibly overnight, while experiencing new and well-established hotels and restaurants in our district.”
