The track and field at Kunshan Civic Park was loaded with tents, booths, live music, food, and beer flowing from every turn. The German tent was especially the place to be; after all, that's where all the foreigners gathered to celebrate.
However, from 2014-2016 Oktober Fest was nowhere to be found in the city. For one, I remember that Oktober Fest was abruptly cancelled back in 2014 due to a factory explosion in Kunshan where over 60 people had lost their lives. Since then, there has been no Oktober Fest in the city.
If you are absolutely yearning to celebrate Oktober Fest in Kunshan, though, I believe there are two options: One, you can head to Shanghai and attend their annual Oktober Fest. Two, there is a German restaurant on the Westside of Kunshan. The owner will often advertise events and deals at his restaurant in groups on WeChat for Kunshan expats.
