When And Where Is This Happening?

Where Do I Park?
Refer to the map below for a layout of the show parking. While we invite everyone to come out and enjoy this event, it is and always was primarily intended to be a celebration of European cars specifically. In keeping with this, we only allow European cars in the main / long term parking which is outlined in blue on the map below. For all other makes and models, as well as overflow and short term parking we ask that you use the lots next door at the soccer park, which is outlined in yellow. For the main lot, parking is first come, first served, and registration is not necessary to attend. Again, please do not arrive before 11:00 am or you will be turned away.
What Should I Expect?
Good food, great people, delicious beer, and a very laid back atmosphere. Check out some of these photos and videos from past years to get an idea of what Oktoberfest is all about!

Where Do I Stay?
This area has a ton of great places to stay in and around the downtown Raleigh, NC area, but if you're looking to be closer to the event these are the two closest hotels to us:
Located less than 1/2 mile from our shop- this hotel easily within walking distance of the event. The Hampton Inn has free breakfast, free wifi, and workout facilities. *** Apparently they have recently stopped allowing pets , sorry for the misinformation.
Located over 1.7 miles from our shop this hotel is still very close to the event however walking is not ideal due to train tracks. While not as close the Windham offers free breakfast, wifi, workout facilities, as well as a pool and hot tub.
