T.J. Finley’s popular Oktoberfest returns to Bay Shore Sept. 24


Dust off your dirndl dress or lederhosen shorts because T.J. Finley’s popular Oktoberfest is upon us.

The date is set for Saturday, Sept. 24, from 3-7 p.m. at 42 East Main Street in Bay Shore.

People from near and far head to the Main Street mainstay pub and its outdoor Biergarten each year for Oktoberfest.

“Since 2007, we have celebrated Oktoberfest with our loyal customers and it’s become one of our premier events each year,” said T.J. Finley’s co-owner Mike McElwee.

How the day works is simple.

For $25, each ticket-holder gets a food item, typically a big Bavarian pretzel or a bratwurst, a stein (their choice of size), and that stein gets filled once free with their choice of beer. There’s also a stein-holding competition with prizes. Traditional German music gets piped through the place throughout the event.
