Peekskill St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee to Celebrate Oktoberfest

Brats, Brews, Music & More!

Get you your lederhosen and kilts ready, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee  is celebrating Oktoberfest. This Thursday, October 19th from 5:30-9pm the Peekskill St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee is inviting everyone to their 1st Annual Oktoberfest at Cortlandt Colonial as a fundraiser for the 33rd annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in March of 2024.

Diners will enjoy a smorgasbord of German fare such as bratwurst, knockwurst, German potato salad, sauerkraut, red cabbage, spaetzle, Bavarian pretzels and traditional German desserts. Partygoers will be entertained and dancing for hours to the sounds of German music performed by Eric Baal of Alpine Squeeze. The cost is $49 per person. Reservations are required and can be made online via the Peekskill St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee website. All proceeds go towards the 2024 Peekskill St. Patrick’s Day Parade. 

The 2024 Peekskill St. Patrick’s Day Parade is slated to occur on March 9, 2024. Just last month, the Peekskill St. Pat’s Committee unveiled the Grand Marshall and the Aides for Peekskill’s 33rd Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

The Grand Marshall for the 2024 St. Patrick’s Day Parade will be the former Governor of  New York, the Honorable George E. Pataki. The Aides to the Grand Marshall are a varied group of people. They include former Peekskill Mayor and NYS DMV Commissioner Richard Jackson, Pete Peterson, Pam Sgroi, and Father Vernon Wickrematunge. On November 26th, the St Patrick’s Day Committee Grand Marshal Installation Dinner will occur. For more information about the 2024 St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Installation Dinner, as well as upcoming events and the St. Pat’s Peekskill Coupon Book, visit the Peekskill St. Pats Committee website and follow their social media pages.
