Admission: $8 Per Person

From the opening oompahs of the Friday night parade until the last bratwurst is gone, the Delaware Saengerbund Oktoberfest, hosted in Newark, is a three-day celebration of German food and culture ... and, of course, beer. The men wear lederhosen. The women wear dirndls. It's not unusual to see a United States Senator or two speaking before the tapping of the first keg (and having a sip immediately after). Prost! 

The Oktoberfest opens on Friday at 5:00 p.m. and closes at 11 p.m, Saturday noon to 11 p.m., Sunday noon to 6 p.m.  Rain or shine.

Opening Parade: The opening parade will be held on Friday at 7:00 p.m. The parade features the Muenchner Kindl, Munich Child, symbol of the city of Munich which leads the opening parade of the Munich Oktoberfest. The child is dressed in brown monk's garb with golden stripes, similar to that of the Benedictine order, founders of the city. 

Food: German specialties include grilled Bratwurst (pork sausage), Weisswuurst (veal sausage), Frankfurters, BBQ chicken, pretzels and "Rollmops", a marinated herring served with rye bread. Potato salad and sauerkraut are made in the Delaware Saengerbund kitchen by the Ladies organization. A variety of Torten and traditional plum cake are the tempting sweet fare.
