Travel Advice

When traveling to Oktoberfest we would suggest to all our visitors to use the great public transport available around York as there will be no parking available on site.

On Foot

Please DO NOT use the footpaths close to the river when coming to or leaving the event as they are likely to be muddy and will be unlit and potentially dangerous. We strongly encourage people to walk to the event where possible, but advise that they use the well-lit pavements leading to Shipton Road which are a much safer and cleaner option. There is a road leading from Shipton Road, through York Sports Club grounds to our fantastic Grande Bier Tent!
