​​OOMPAH-PAH!!! Newark's 5th Annual OktoberFest, scheduled for Saturday, September 30th, 2017 is where you want to be! The Traditional Family Fun is enjoyed all afternoon under the trees in the picnic grove at Swiss Park in Newark, it's where EVERYONE gets to be “German for a Day!”  What will you find here? Live Bavarian band, dancing, games, favorite German & domestic beers, and authentic OktoberFest fare. Yes, enjoy your bratwurst, sauerkraut, apple strudel, pretzels and more.  And don't whine...we'll have wine, too! (Well, a "tiny" bit of wine for beer wusses!)

But this year the celebrating continues in the evening in the spacious Swiss Park Banquet Hall, at Newark OktoBEERfest After Dark - where most of the same fun and games continue into the night - but the music will get you rockin' and on the dance floor - interspersed, of course, with choruses of favorite German drinking songs!
