DESIGNATED DRIVERS

A note about our decision against offering Designated Driver tickets to this year’s Charlotte OktoberFest.
The decision not to offer Designated Driver tickets was centered on the unfortunate choice patrons made to abuse the privilege by drinking at the festival. Since this defeats the purpose of the ticket, we have carefully considered alternative ways to keep patrons safe as they travel to and from the festival.

Here’s what we’re doing to try to compensate for the lack of Designated Driver tickets:

  • We partner with lots of rideshare and cab companies, and the event location offers access to alternative forms of transportation (visit our Transportation Page for more information).
  • We’re working with Symphony Park to facilitate drop-off and pick-up locations to the festival.

Many of the craft beers that will be poured at the Charlotte OktoberFest are considered high gravity (high ABV), so we urge all our attendees to take this into consideration when sampling. Remember, water at the festival will be provided free of charge. Our goal is for everyone attending the festival to have a fun, safe day, so please drink responsibly, stay hydrated, and don’t drink & drive!
