Held at Tempe Beach Park, this year’s Oktoberfest will be three days jam packed full of activities beginning Friday, October 1st – Sunday October 3rd. Admission to the Tempe Oktoberfest is FREE.
Some of the cool things you will find at Tempe Oktoberfest are:
Beer Gardens: ( 9 Beer Gardens on Saturday night, 3 more than last year )
Live Bands: ( Mogollon, Keltic Cowboys, Furious George & more! )
Kinderfest: ( Kid fun with craft zone, carnival rides, climbing wall and MORE )
Of course, riding the light rail to the Tempe Oktoberfest is probably going to be the easiest way to get to and from the fun. There is a light rail station at Mill Avenue which drops you off just south of Tempe Beach Park. Many people traveling to the Tempe Oktoberfest will use a Park and Ride lot and then travel to Mill Avenue to head to the fun. Below is a map showing the METRO light rail park and ride locations. You can also click to see a Phoenix light rail map.
