PARKING

  • There is a parking area onsite and parking is FREE. If you find you need to find other parking arrangements, Swiss Park Newark is across the street from NewPark Mall and 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!


DRINKING & SAFE DRIVING

  • Think Uber, think Lyft, or bring your designated driver! Be safe, not sorry!


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.


WHAT CAN OR CAN'T I BRING TO THE EVENT?

*YOU CAN BRING:

  • 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! Note: No sun to worry about inside at OktoBeerFest After Dark. 
  • Cash and credit cards. Bring cash with your credit. Entry is cash only, both day and evening event. German food is cash only. And, it's a good idea to have cash on hand in case vendors are selling product and don't accept credit cards or,  technology decides not to cooperate - processing glitches are no fun!


*YOU CAN'T BRING:

  • Food or beverages purchased off site.
  • Alcoholic beverages of any kind. No drinking of any alcoholic beverages outside  of the designated picnic grove festival site, outside the banquet hall, or in parking lots.
  • Anything to smoke.
  • Pets (unless service animal.)
  • A bad attitude. Unacceptable, disruptive, obvious under the influence or otherwise inappropriate behavior can result in you being removed from the site without refund. We're all here to have a great day!!!!
