Q. Since the event is in not in October, why is it called
A. Originally, Lake Compounce held their own celebration
with an Oktoberfest theme near the end of their operating season. Our event
was chosen to have a similar sounding name to go with both the Park celebration
and with Boulder Dash Mountain Coaster. On September 23, 2000, Oc~Boulder~Fest!
celebrated for the first time. The Lake no longer holds their own
Oktoberfest, in fact the first year of O~B~F!
was the last year The Lake celebrated with their own Oktoberfest!
The park now closes their regular operating season earlier in September
in order to prepare for their Haunted Graveyard.
Q. The event has been held in early/mid-September these
past several years. Why is it being held in August this year?
A. Coaster events compete for limited weekend availability,
and an August date was chosen for 2017.
