Whiteface Mountain Oktoberfest

ShowHide 1 More Dates
  • Ticket admission varies - See description



Each fall we dust off our lederhosen, fire up the oompah band and enjoy a tall mug of German beer at the Whiteface Mountain Oktoberfest. Mark your calendars for the weekend-long, Bavarian-style celebration with authentic music, dancing, food and beer—rated one of the 5 Must-Visit Oktoberfests in North America by SKI Magazine!


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 2019/20 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 to order 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 online for $18 per person. Please note: Cloudsplitter Gondola Rides are FREE for ages 6 & under.


*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.
