UMC Oktoberfest, the premiere beer festival of 2020, is coming back this year! UMC is a 511-acre venue, home of the nation’s 2nd largest roads course and a nationally ranked go-kart track. We hosted over 50+ types of beer in 2020 – everything from local craft to authentic German.
Not only is this a beer festival, but this is also a family-friendly event. We invite everyone of all ages to come and experience Oktoberfest. Of course, you have to be 21 to purchase alcohol, and yes, we will ID you. Oh, and did we mention…? WE’RE A DOG FRIENDLY EVENT!
Here is a list of some of the activities we held in 2020:
- Archery Tag
- Nerf Gun Wars
- Movie Nights
- Lawn Games
- Live Racing
- Keg Bowling
- Live Music
- Drift Trike Racing
- And much more!
So why not come out and enjoy amazing beer, fast cars, and family fun.
October Every Saturday and Sunday
2020 Line-Up. 2021 Coming Soon.
What are the prices for the mugs, drinks, food or merchandise?
All pricing is available and listed on-site.
Why are you not directly refilling the mug I bought?
Due to COVID-19, bartenders cannot directly come in contact with your drinking mug; therefore, you will be given a new cup each time you are served.
Can I bring the mug I already bought from another weekend with me so I don't have to buy another?
Yes! If you’ve already bought a mug from a previous weekend, by all means bring it with you to re-use!
What if there is bad weather?
Unless there is severe wind, rain, or lightning Oktoberfest will continue as planned. If lightning occurs during the event, we will notify guests and ask everyone to wait it out in their cars. Since this is a free entry event, there are no refunds of any kind due to weather.
Some weekends may be a bit chilly. Please bring a jacket or coat just in case!
Can I buy beer without buying an Official UMC Souvenir Mug?
No. In order to buy any type of alcohol, you must first have your ID checked and then purchase an Official UMC Souvenir Mug – each mug comes with the first fill included.
I look way past 21, will you really ID me?
YES! We will ID EVERYONE!
Where can I find a map and schedule for Oktoberfest?
The map and daily schedules will be available at the bottom of this webpage.
I've never been to UMC/Oktoberfest. What should I know?
UMC is a 511-acre event and motorsports facility. Oktoberfest is an all-ages, mostly outdoor, German themed beer and food festival. Since it is mostly outdoors, we highly encourage you to bring jackets, umbrellas, etc just in case.
How much is parking?
There is a $10 per car/motorcycle/etc per day fee.
Can I bring lawn chairs?
Yes, but only lawn chairs and/or blankets. No tents or any other structures are allowed.
Can I get in without a ticket?
NO. Everyone (including dogs) MUST have a ticket in order to enter the facility.
Is there a waiver?
Yes. Your ticket will indicate if you have already accepted the terms of our waiver for you and your group. If your ticket does not indicate that you have accepted our waiver, we will have you sign a waiver on site.
Is outside food or drink allowed?
No, other than you can bring a SEALED bottle of water per person.
Can I attend if I'm not 21?
Yes, this is an all-ages event.
Can I drive the Go-Karts or MiniMotos if I've been drinking?
ABSOLUTELY NOT. NO EXCEPTIONS. It is no different than drinking and driving with your car on a public road. You will be turned away if you have been drinking.
Do I need to print my tickets or can I just have them on my phone?
Either option is great! As long as we can scan the QR code on the ticket then you are good to go!
