Is babysitting available?

We're confirming that now.  Babysitting is 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 with: 

  • parent's name and cell #; and 
  • children's names and ages.

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?


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.

How do we buy tickets?  Tickets on sale soon!

Click the button on this page to go to the ticket page and pay online.  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 tickets in person?

No.  E-mail us if you have a problem purchasing online.

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?

We expect the event to sell out fairly quickly, as it has sold out for the last two years. If there are any tickets left, we will make an announcement about tickets at the door.

Can I make a contribution to St. Margaret's School?

If you want to, you can.  The St. Margaret's School community helps us sell some of the tickets. Our online payment form will give you the option of designating $5 per ticket to St. Margaret's School.  Other than this, all the proceeds from the event go to the Fire Department and the Dickens Festival.
