This Friday and Saturday take part in the 3rd annual Oktoberfest Vermont on the Burlington Waterfront. Celebrate German food, music, costumes and of course, beer!
If you plan on enjoying the phenomenal local and international beer please do not drive to Oktoberfest Vermont. If you are using your vehicle, be aware that there will be no additional on-site parking for this event.
People traveling by bike can take advantage of Local Motion’s Bike Valet Program. Local Motion’s team will park your bike and ensure both your bike and biking accessories are secure. Burlington Greenway access on the waterfront will be impacted by this event. The eastern section of the Greenway will be closed from 4:30pm-10:30pm. The western portion of the path will remain open.
Designated drivers should head to Lakeview, College or Marketplace Garage for parking. The waterfront also offers parking at the Pease Lot and at the Main Street Landing Lot. Limited metered parking spaces are available on Lake Street, so it’s best to arrive early to get your spot.
As always Green Mountain Transit will run its free College Street Shuttle throughout the day. The bus picks up riders at the bottom of College Street.
While Saturday’s event, which begins at 5:00pm, has already sold out, a small number of tickets remain for Friday evening’s session which starts at 5:30.
For everyone heading to the waterfront this weekend, please drink responsibly and enjoy the summery weather. Park Burlington will continue to post updates on Twitter, Facebook and parkburlington.com. Additional information about Oktoberfest Vermont can be found at the info page of their website.
