Where to celebrate Oktoberfest around Vancouver

Oktoberfest Vancouver 2022
Festivals and breweries to celebrate Oktoberfest in Vancouver, B.C., 2022, including Harvest Haus, Brewhalla, Craftoberfest, and Parallel 49.

What's a better pairing than beer, bratwurst, and pretzels?

Oktoberfest is that cheery time of the year when people gather round to drink beer and breweries switch to Bavarian menus. During the three-week occasion, those looking for a sleeve and a Bavarian bite can find Oktoberfest all over the city.

This beer and music festival's North Vancouver edition has lots of booze (24 vendors, to be precise!) in the spirit of Oktoberfest. PS: Another festival from the same organizers also takes place at the end of the month with a more spooky theme out in Surrey. Tickets can be purchased online
