October is a special time in the Rockaways. With the change in season and weather, this unique event is one that any music fan can enjoy. “Rocktoberfest” is hosted by the Rockaway Beach Surf Club, located at 302 Beach 87th Street. Throughout the event there will be live jazz music from a variety of artists, food and lots of fun. Some of the performers will include a jazz quartet with Tim Otto and The Blue Tones. There is no cost to enter, so bring as many people as you want! The event will be on October 19th, starting at 2:00pm, and will go until midnight.


The Rockaway Beach Surf Club is a non-profit community organization and cultural space devoted to promoting the love of surfing, conserving the environment and supporting its local neighborhood. Their mission is to inspire the community and its residents through surfing and to be a fun and positive destination for the neighborhood.


One of the biggest reasons why RBSC puts Rocktoberfest on every year is due to the belief in supporting everything the community has to offer, including the work of artists, writers, musicians and all lovers of surf and the beach. With the support of a community at their fingertips, Rocktoberfest brings out a lot of local musicians and songwriters, making this just another reason why an event like this is special.
