Frequently Asked Questions.
You have questions and we have answers. Review some of our most frequently asked questions and if you can’t find your answer there, send us a message.
When is Oktoberfest?
Oktoberfest is September 29, 2018 from 3-9 PM. Gates open at 3pm.
Where do I buy tickets?
You can buy your tickets here or day-of at the gate. See the below FAQ regarding cash/credit cards.
There will be no physical tickets this year, so please bring them via the Eventbrite app or print them out.
Where will I find it?
Oktoberfest is at the historic Herron-Morton Place Park, located in downtown Indianapolis, 1927 N. Alabama Street.
Steins vs. Pints?
Buy one of our commemorative Herron-Morton Place Oktoberfest steins, and you get your first Sun King Beer on us!
What about kids?
Kids are welcome at Oktoberfest. In fact, those 12 and under get in free!
What is the plan if it rains?
Oktoberfest happens rain or shine. The forecast looks great right now, but then again we are talking about Indiana weather.
What about parking and transportation?
Street parking is free overnight. If you decide to ride your bike, bike parking will also be available through Pedal & Park.
How do I become a sponsor?
Oktoberfest is a great opportunity to connect with a large, diverse group of downtown residents. If you’re interested in becoming an Oktoberfest sponsor, contact Haley Glover.
Do you accept credit cards?
We accept credit cards and cash at the door. It’s a good idea to have cash for the individual vendors as not all are able to accept credit cards. There are some ATMs near the park, though there is not one onsite. Some nearby ATMS include Chase Bank (16th & Meridian) and PNC (17th & Meridian).
How do I become a volunteer?
If you’re interested in volunteering, contact Eric Otto. Volunteering is a great way to listen to great music for free and meet your neighbors. We need help at the door, with setup/cleanup and working with the bands and vendors to make sure everything runs smoothly.
What about my dog?
We love dogs! They are welcome to come and have a beer with us at Oktoberfest (provided they have valid ID).
What is the Herron Morton Place Foundation?
The Herron-Morton Place Foundation, Inc. was founded as a 501C-3 tax deductible organization to protect, revitalize, promote and strengthen the area in and around Herron Morton Place.
The Foundation helped found and build the historic park that’s now the home of Oktoberfest. Our other current projects include the Foundry Project Redevelopment and other real estate development.
The organization is completely run by volunteers and 100% supported by donations. Everything we do in the neighborhood depends on your sponsorship and support.
