TICKETS FOR OKTOBERFEST 2017:
Go on sale first at Bristol Volksfest (9-11th June 2017) and then on this website the week after.
If you want to guarantee a particular pitch or electric hook up this is the best place to buy them. They are then available for general sale from our website the week after.
Oktoberfest's a real one off...
A completely unique VW Event in the UK - indeed, it's not a' show' at all in the expected sense!
So say "au revoir" to the V-dub show season in style and come and find yourself a real Volkswagen Adventure.
Oktoberfest is all about you crazy campers. It's held at the River Dart Country Park - an absolute jewel of a campsite packed with with an endless list of on and off site facilities....fun for all the family.
2 great nights of entertainment with live bands, DJs, entertainers and competitions including our Saturday night Spooktacular Halloween Fancy Dress Party with a uniquely Oktoberfest slant on the traditional.
Limited trade presence - so there's no huge trade arena, just a selection of some of our favourites.
The River Dart Country Park hosts the best outdoor facilities including an utterly amazing adventure playground, wonderful country and river walks, zip wires, high ropes, bmx pump track and so much more...the kids definitely won't go home bored!
If you don't fancy cooking while you're camping there's a variety of delicious food and drink served all weekend from the Old Saw Mill.
On the Sunday we have an informal Show & Shine in the gorgeous hotel gardens. We also hand out a mixture of other wacky awards just for the campers.
* Electric hook-up is available but not guaranteed. So get in quick if you want power to the van!
* Extend your stay - if you want to make more of the weekend then you can stay on Thursday and Sunday nights as well (extra charge applies).
