Traditionally, the beginning of Oktoberfest is over in the very beginning of October. In Germany, the festival is a 16- to 18-day folk festival running actually in the middle of September and always ends at the first week of October.

Here in Buffalo, we don't miss a good opportunity to drink--and we'll drag it out as long as we can!
