The top 5 Oktoberfest events in Toronto for 2015

Oktoberfest events in Toronto are popping up at venues across the city. Beer halls and breweries are pulling out all the stops in an effort to transform Toronto into Munich for a few sweet days of celebration. So dust off your dirndl or lederhosen because it's time to drink.

Here are my picks for where to celebrate Oktoberfest in Toronto in 2015.

Toronto Oktoberfest (September 18-19)
Toronto's biggest Oktoberfest party will be taking over Ontario Place for two days of German-inspired fun. The aim is to be as authentic as possible, so you'll find plenty of Bavarian fare, German and European biers, lederhosen-clad guests and entertainment. Over three thousand people have RSVP'd to the Facebook event, so you'll be in good company. Joining the party will cost you $25.

Steam Whistle Oktoberfest Party (September 19)
Get ready for a day of stein hoisting, keg tapping and German dancing celebrations when the event hits Steam Whistle Brewery. Complete with all the Oktoberfest fixings, you'll find authentic German eats, traditional German dancers, and entertainment by Oktoberfest King George Kash. If you buy your ticket in advance, you'll get $5 off the $30 admission price.

Mill St. Beer Hall Oktoberfest Party (September 26)
The ideal place to celebrate Oktoberfest - if you can't get yourself to Munich - is a Beer Hall, and Mill St. has just that. On September 26th you'll find the brewery filled with guests sipping Mill St. brews from steins and getting their fill of Bavarian fare. In true Oktoberfest fashion there will also be live music and German-themed entertainment on tap for the evening. A ticket will put you back $30.

Oktoberfest 2015 at Amsterdam BrewHaus (October 2-3)
Head to Amsterdam Brewery on the first weekend in October for some seriously German celebrations. On the menu is traditional eats like schnitzel, sausages, pretzel necklaces, and - of course - Amsterdam brews. If that's not enough to draw you in, there will also a live band playing traditional German music. You can reserve your spot now.

OktoberFEAST at the Berkeley Church (October 8)
Celebrate Oktoberfest while doing some good. OktoberFEAST will bring Canadian Cancer Society, craft brewers, wineries and gourmet food vendors together for one entertainment-packed evening. Instead of sticking to a strictly German menu, the fest has opted to include food vendors of all types. Expect to find fare from Cheesewerks, Barque, Thoroughbred, and more. Tickets run for $40.
