What better way to start the fall than with an Oktoberfest! This free KPBX Kids Concert celebrated the dance and music of Bavaria at River Park Square on Oct. 7 2017 at 1 p.m. The hour-long free concert features the low brass quartet, SPARC.

Sometimes spelled “Octoberfest” this traditional German festival celebrates much more than the autumn harvest. It’s an explosion of traditional music, folk dancing, cultural expression, and (for adults) beer.
