The fully decked-out, tented outdoor festival incorporates classic, authentic German Oktoberfest elements such as a food and drink menu that rivals any great beer hall in Munich, traditional dress and a quintessential boisterous Oompah band, Mösl Franzi and the JaJaJas, fronted by Zum Schneider’s founder/owner Sylvester Schneider.

This year marks the eighth year of Zum Schneider’s Oktoberfest celebration, which has consistently seen crowds of 7,000+ per year, and the 23rd year of Zum Schneider’s existence. From 2000 to 2020, Zum Schneider was a much-beloved city staple. The family-run restaurant and beer hall was located on New York City’s Avenue C, founded by German native Sylvester Schneider. As soon as his sons were of age, Schneider’s children joined him running the successful business, which also included an outpost in Montauk from 2012-2018. In 2020, the original brick and mortar Zum Schneider was forced to close down, but the name and world-class German offerings live on via Zum Schneider’s yearly Oktoberfest festival, Munich In Brooklyn, organized by Sylvester Schneider, his sons and manager Sylvia Lochmann.
