OktoberFest is a German Festival celebrated around the world featuring authentic German foods, music and dancing, contests and games, and of course - THERE WILL BE excellent German BEER! Our 5th Annual OktoberFest has three distinct elements: An All-European Make Car Show for our car enthusiasts; a Traditional OktoberFest celebration all afternoon outdoors in the Grove; and finally, an "OktoBEERfest After Party" as the party continues that evening inside Swiss Park's large banquet hall, where we'll mix it up - with traditional OktoberFest festivities and some popular music to get you out on the dance floor.

Noon-6 pm, $5 gate fee (entry only – food & beverage available to buy); 6 & under FREE. Cash only at gate.
11 am – 4 pm, Car Show; FREE to everyone.

FAQs

ARE THERE AGE OR ID REQUIREMENTS?
The only ID requirements daytime are for those who wish to purchase alcoholic beverages. The Evening After Party is for 21+. You must provide an ID and receive and wear a wristband in order to purchase and drink alcoholic beverages at both events. Alcoholic beverages may not be carried/taken outside the outdoor gated or the indoor banquet hall during the events. No drinking allowed in parking lot areas on site.

DRINKING & DRIVING: Think UBER or LYFT please....or, bring your Designated Driver. Be safe, not sorry!

PARKING

There is a parking area onsite and parking is FREE. If full and you find you need to find other parking arrangements, Swiss Park Newark is across the street from NewPark Mall as well as a host of other retail centers where there will be some parking availability. However, do not park where businesses have noted parking limitations. Good neighbors are respectful!

WHAT CAN I BRING TO THE EVENT?

  • Your most fun friends, ages 0-101+ and a great attitude and plan to have fun!

  • Your shades, a hat, and sunscreen, even though there is plenty of shade in the picnic grove area. We expect sun! Evening event is indoors - no sunscreen required!

  • Cash and credit cards. Day of the event entry at gate and door is CASH ONLY. Food purchases: German food vendor is CASH. If any vendors are selling product, they may or may not accept credit cards. It's always a good idea to have cash on hand in case technology decides not to cooperate - processing surprises are no fun!

Yes, you may give your ticket to a friend, however, we require one ticket per person, so if you change your mind and want to come (which you will), you can purchase a ticket at the door.


DO I HAVE TO BRING MY TICKET TO THE EVENT?


No - feel free to bring your phone and we can check you in that way.


WHAT IS THE REFUND POLICY?
