WILDWOOD — Oktoberfest comes to the Wildwoods on Friday, Sept. 20, for four consecutive weekends at Morey’s Piers. The German-themed revelry officially commences with a ceremonial keg-tapping of Warsteiner beer by the lederhosen-clad Morey family at 6 p.m. Special guest Helmut Fricker, a German yodeler and alphorn player, will perform authentic music during the opening weekend.
The festivities will include classic Oktoberfest food and beverages at Wilhelm’s Bier Garten and Jumbo’s Grub & Pub, a kids “Rootbier Garten” activity area, and a full line-up of bands rocking the Coca-Cola branded stage at Mariner’s Pier near the Giant Wheel during the Oktoberfest weekends.
