Good, because Rocktoberfest food and music festival hits the village on Saturday, Oct. 11.

Eight local bands and six Westchester eateries will fill the air with amazing sounds and smells throughout the event at Matthiessen Park, at the end of Bridge Street in Irvington, from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Beer will be flowing throughout the day courtesy Captain Lawrence Brewery of Elmsford.

Rocktoberfest is presented by Irvington F.A.C.E. (Fundraising and Community Events), which is asking for a $10 per individual or $25 per family suggested donation, which will go toward supporting Irvington recreation programs.

  • Route 9
  • Ang ‘n Ed

  • A Moment’s Worth
