This fall fest celebrates autumn with cornstalks, hay and pumpkins in the middle of the city! Enjoy craft beer in the Goose Island Beer Garden, cocktails featuring Maker's Mark, along with warm and hearty seasonal foods. DJs and live music will perform on the Met Philadelphia Stage.

Today, the family fun includes pumpkin tic-tac-toe and cornhole bean-bag toss, plus a carved pumpkin contest. Contestants bring their already-carved pumpkins to Dilworth Park, where attendees will vote for Octoberfest’s top pumpkin from noon to 7:30 p.m. The winner will take home a Jim Beam electric fireplace and $100 ride credit from Lyft! Pre-registration is required, so Click Here to register your pumpkin creation!

There's also Kids Pumpkin Painting, 1:30-4:30pm. Kids 12 and under can join the Philly Art Center in Dilworth Park and decorate their own pumpkins. Free.

Also today, Philly Loves Beer Executive Director Christina Dowd returns as judge for the Octoberfest stein-holding competition at 4:30 p.m., sponsored by Victory Brewing Company. The man and woman who can keep their beer steins hoisted the longest will each receive a prize!

Plus, there will be free apple cider every day (while supplies last) courtesy of Lyft, your responsible ride home from Octoberfest.
