What's it all about...
Oktoberfest is 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 "auf wiedersehen" to the V-dub show season in style and come and find yourself a real Volkswagen Adventure.
Oktoberfest was born on a lovely campsite in Cheddar in 2008 where we spent four years before the move to The River Dart Country Park which is a real gem of a campsite. The main theme of the show is very simple - it's all about you crazy campers! Held in October, this is the perfect way to see off the end of a busy VW show season, and catch up with old friends before going into hibernation for the winter.
The River Dart Country Park is an absolute jewel of a campsite - packed with with an endless list of on and off site facilities....fun for all the family. The 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!
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.
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.
