Whiteface Mountain Oktoberfest
Once a year, Whiteface dusts off its lederhosen, fires up the oompah band and enjoys a tall mug of German beer. Oktoberfest is a weekend-long celebration of Bavarian culture, with authentic music, dancing, food and beer. But it's not just about eating and drinking (not that there's anything wrong with that). You'll find complimentary rides for kids and adults, craft vendors and discounted trips on the Cloudsplitter Gondola to the summit of Little Whiteface. The views from up there will make it pretty clear why Fall in the Adirondacks is something worth celebrating.
We're offering FREE 1-Day Admission + Gondola Ride for anyone with an Olympic Sites Passport, as well as FREE Admission + Gondola Rides on Sunday for all Whiteface and Mt. Van Hoevenberg 2018/19 Season Pass holders! Simply present your Olympic Sites Passport or Season Pass at the gate. If you don't have your Season Pass yet (either it's being mailed or you're planning to pick up), just head to the ticket window for your free admission and gondola ticket.
Juniors ages 12 & under can also enjoy FREE admission both days of the festival. All festival attendees must have an admission ticket for entry, so we encourage families get their free Junior Admission ticket(s) in advance online to avoid waiting at the ticket window. You may also choose to purchase a Gondola Ride Add-On for Juniors ages 7-12 in advance online for $14 per person. Please note: Cloudsplitter Gondola Rides are FREE for Juniors ages 6 & under.
The 2018 Schedule will be available soon!
*Pet policy: We all love our pets, but we do ask that you leave them at home during the festival. Only service dogs will be permitted at Oktoberfest.
