As Portland’s iconic amusement park is celebrating the harvest with a fun, family-friendly celebration of the season. The Oaks Park Oktoberfest is one fall festival you won’t want to miss.
This Oktoberfest has events that anyone can enjoy. The festival is broken up into the Main Festhalle and a Family Festhalle. Each have their own list of activities throughout the day. Try your hand at the pretzel toss; make a masterpiece at the condiment art art contest; shake it at the chicken dance contest; and hit the dance floor to learn some old-fashioned polka moves.
Also, you have to check out the weiner dog races. Watching our furry friends with their stubby little legs barking their way down a track is always hilarious.
If you’re in it for the beer and only the beer, each pint can be bought with a “scrip.” Each scrip is $6 and can be purchased at select areas at the event. The beer list includes many German favorites, as well as local favorites like Zoiglhaus. Cider and wine are also available with a scrip. Meals and snacks range from $4-$15.
The best part of this Oktoberfest is the price. While there are some add-on activities for an extra cost, such as mini golf, go karts and roller skating, the general admission for all the Oktoberfest fun is very reasonable.
Admission is $6 for adults, $3 for kids 15 and under and $4 for seniors 62 and older.
