Sunnyside Gardens Park will host its annual Oktoberfest this weekend, complete with biergarten, authentic German food, the festival’s ever-popular pumpkin patch and an arts and crafts fair.

The event is set to take place on Saturday, Oct. 2 between noon and 5 p.m. at the park, located at 48-21 39th Ave.

The park’s picnic grove will be transformed into a beer garden, where German-styled beer, wine and cider will be served. Attendees can also enjoy German food and live music throughout the day.

There will also be an arts and crafts fair at the festival featuring work from local artists. The artists and craft vendors will showcase their work which will be for sale at the festival. Past events have seen about 20 vendors at the festival.

The family friendly event will feature a huge pumpkin patch, kids crafts, carnival rides, face painting and other activities for children to enjoy. Admission is free and the event is open to the public.

Oktoberfest draws visitors from across the city, with about 2,000 festival-goers expected.

Don’t bother going if you want to bring your dog whose a service animal and in a stroller. You’ll be denied entry. Even if you are a sunnyside gardens member they will refuse you entry. DISGUSTING.

Lost hope for this festival

The festival did not go as how it was said! The prices are high and there is no free crafts! The pumpkins are very expensive and everything is expensive! There is no free admission

How can it be free admission

If it’s a private park,??

Why is this even in the paper? Only the people invited were able and allowed to attend.

Stop reporting things that happen at this park.

Your liberal neighbors have made 39th Ave a play street for those who can’t afford to go into the park.

What the hell is ‘German-styled beer’ and how is it different from actual German beer?

Sunnyside Garden = White supremacy

I lived in Sunnyside my whole life (30 years) and was never allowed in this park. When ask, they would say it was a private park for people who lived in Sunnyside garden. In order words, just the white privilege kids were allowed to play inside. This park is a joke and should be opened for everyone. Just walking past it reminds me how under resource me and others were growing up in Sunnyside.

Jealousy is an ugly thing

“Under-Resourced”- WOW you sound pretty bitter. I guess the other three parks in the immediate area aren’t good enough for you. You sound pretty entitled. Privately funded park means they can keep those who don’t fund the park out and since you’re not willing to pay up, this means you.

Looking forward to my first Oktoberfest in Sunnyside. So glad i moved here from Astoria this past summer. People are friendly and the neighborhood is a lot quieter.

Private parks are cleaner and safer for our kids to play in. I don’t mind paying for my kids safety.

Not everybody is able to

Get more cops

That’s the answer.

Perhaps you could start a GoFundMe for people who can’t afford to join. Share your wealth.

They are so very liberal when it comes to other people’s neighborhoods but when it comes to their own neighborhood they want to keep it “safe” , everyone of them are hypocrites, especially the newly transplants with their fake window liberal signage

Why is this getting downvoted?

He’s absolutely right! It’s ridiculous that this park is private yet Sunnyside Post gets to advertise all it’s goings on!
