The return of fall isn’t complete on the South Coast without New Bedford’s Oktoberfest. The South Coast Business Alliance with the support of Bask, Stonegate Mortgage and Claremont Properties, brings its signature event back to Pier 3 on the waterfront on October 1, 2022. This year marks the 16th annual fundraiser which features everything from local and craft brews to American traditional favorites. Attendees can select from over 20 different choices of beer, hard seltzers and sangria while enjoying live entertainment.
The event runs from 3:00pm to midnight and tickets start at just $15 when purchased in advance. In addition to a variety of brews available, food trucks and food vendors are on-site ready to provide delectable choices to pair with your drink.
Part of the Oktoberfest tradition is to also provide local entertainment a platform to showcase their talents at one of the most well-attended and high-profile events in downtown New Bedford. The bands featured range from young musicians just getting their feet wet on the performance circuit, to local staples that define artistry on the Southcoast. This year’s line-up includes Off-Kilter, Citrus Biscuit, Morrissey Boulevard, NB Rudeboys and the Pourmen. For stage times and additional details on performers, visit southcoastbusinessalliance.org.
The South Coast Business Alliance has generated over one million dollars through this event over the last nearly two decades. The group’s mission has been constant; to raise money, awareness and involvement for the most vulnerable and at-risk youth of our beloved region. The SCBA is one hundred percent volunteer based, comprised of 18 active members that donate their own time and funds to continue the legacy started by ten young business professionals craving more than just a networking organization in 2005.
Because the SCBA is all volunteer based, 100% of proceeds are donated and circulated right back into the Southcoast through non-profit organizations whose mission and direct services align with our own.
