In Canada, fall is heralded by changing leaves, swapping tires, and dropping temperatures. In Germany, they start things off with a massive folk festival in Munich with beer, traditional outfits, and live music all day long. Where can we get a bit of that?

As it turns out, right here in Toronto!

Oktoberfest is famed around the world for being a blast – and we don’t like being left out. Pubs around Canada have started the tradition of bringing a little slice of Bavaria home – and this year, you can kick off your very own Oktoberfest in Toronto!
