From the opening oompahs of the Friday night parade at 7pm until the last bratwurst is gone, the Delaware Saengerbund Oktoberfest is a three-day celebration of German food and culture...and beer. The Oktoberfest opens on Friday at 5:00 p.m. and closes at 11 p.m. Hours on Saturday are 12 to 11 p.m. and Sunday 12 to 6 p.m. (Bars close one hour earlier) Admission is $10.00 which includes unlimited amusement rides. The "Enzian Volkstanzgruppe", the Baravian dance group of the Delaware Saengerbund, performs in traditional costumes and German music is played throughout the festival. German food specialties--grilled Bratwurst, Weisswuurst, Frankfurters, BBQ chicken, pretzels, Rollmops, potato salad, sauerkraut and Toreten--are festival favorites. Off-site parking is available at Christiana High School and the $5.00 fee includes shuttle service.
