Celebrating Oktoberfest

Delaware’s biggest tribute to German heritage is Sept. 19-21

Lederhosen and bratwurst, accordions and beer: It’s time once again for the annual Delaware Saengerbund Oktoberfest, the largest celebration of German heritage and culture in Delaware.

Set for Friday, Sept. 19, through Sunday, Sept. 21, in Newark, the festivities will get underway with a parade led by the Munich child, a symbol of the city of Munich. A Bavarian dance group will perform throughout the weekend, and traditional German platters such as bratwurst (pork sausage) and weisswurst (veal sausage) will be in abundance. Oktoberfest souvenirs and Bavarian clothing also will be available.

Some 20,000 visitors are expected for the family-friendly event, which includes midway amusement rides and games at the Saengerbund headquarters, 49 Salem Church Road.
Tickets are $8 per person.
