Is babysitting available?
Not any more. Babysitting is sold out.
It was limited to the first 50 children of ticket-holders who are pre-registered.
Local high school students will provide babysitting in the big room at Borough Hall. These teen girls are all certified babysitters, and they will also have adult supervision. They are raising money for group/team activities, so please make an appropriate and generous donation. Kids will play games, have pizza, and watch a family-friendly movie while parents are around the corner enjoying Oktoberfest. This service is for potty-trained kids 3 and older.
Once you have purchased tickets, please e-mail email@example.com with:

Can we bring children or babies to the event? How about dogs?
No. We cannot make exceptions to this rule, so please plan accordingly.
Are there any dishes besides Pork and Brats?
We also have turkey and a vegetarian option, as well as a number of side dishes.
Are there any beverages besides beer?
We'll have plenty of beer and bottled water, For the non-beer drinkers, we'll also have some wine available. (And a few people even brought their own favorite wines last year.)
Are there any gluten-free beers?
No, but feel free to bring your own beverages if you have special needs.
What if it rains?
The event is rain or shine. These tents are designed to handle some rain, so we should stay dry underneath. We've actually some rain in past years, and we hardly noticed it.
Do you accept credit cards?
Yes, if you buy online before the day of the event. Our easy and secure Paypal transactions are available to anyone with a major credit card. You do not need a PayPal account to use it.
Can I buy advance tickets in person?
You can buy with cash at Sweet Mabel before the day of the event.
Are there different ticket prices for those who won't be drinking?
All tickets are the same price. Selling out at full price raises the most money possible for two good causes. Plus having one price makes things less complicated for our volunteers.
Will the event sell out? Can we buy tickets at the door?
This event will probably sell out. If there are any tickets left, they will be available for cash-only at the door. But if you buy in advance (by October 15) you will receive a free souvenir mug with every ticket.
Can I make a contribution to St. Margaret's School?
The online payment form will give you the option of designating $5 per ticket to St. Margaret's School. Or you can contact a St. Margaret's School representative to buy an advance ticket in person.
