Enjoy the East End Al Fresco. From Riverhead to Orient to Montauk
The Eastern End of Long Island, New York City’s backyard beach getaway, offers a variety of fun activities for all ages and interests. From Riverhead to Greenport to Montauk, there are the Hamptons, North Fork farms and vineyards, breweries, scenic beaches, and stunning views. From tall ship festivals to music festivals to drag racing events, to the Long Island Aquarium, Splish Splash, and the Parrish Art Museum, there’s something for everyone.
Don your dirndl and lace up your lederhosen for the 2nd Annual Oktoberfest and Reflextions illumination event! Live entertainment, contests, German Style food from Seaside Grill and beer from our local craft breweries; North Fork Brewing Co., Tradewinds Brewing, Twin Fork Beer Co and ubergeek Brewing Co.
This is a family friendly event that is free to attend. Costume contest and stein holding contests!
Reflextions is hosted by the Riverhead Business Improvement District and made possible with public funding from Suffolk County and grants from grants from I LOVE NY, Discover Long Island and East End Tourism Alliance.
Join us for Art of the Brew, a spirited celebration of the local Long Island craft brew scene. Art of the Brew is the perfect setting for sipping, socializing, networking, and gallery exploration for community members and local business leaders.
Discover new breweries and the art of craft beer-making from the brewers! Each brewery has a story to tell and a taste bud to delight. Participating breweries include Twin Fork Brew Company (Riverhead), Kidd Squid Brewing Co (Sag Harbor), übergeek (Riverhead), Springs Brewery, Moriches Field Brewing Company (Center Moriches), Blue Point Brewing Company (Patchogue), Long Island Farm Brewery (Manorville), and Montauk Brewing Company (Montauk). The Museum is glad to support several new community businesses established in the last four years.
Attendees can also wet their whistle with Wölffer Estate’s Spring in a Bottle, a sparkling nonalcoholic rosé—or stop by the Top Hop Half Pint tap truck, a three-wheeled Piaggio Ape Classic imported from Italy, to fill your glass with one of Blue Point Brewing Company’s top-quality draft beers!
