Onslow Oktoberfest has truly become a premier event in Jacksonville and Onslow County.
Great attendance, outstanding community participation and wonderful weather made the 6th Annual Oktoberfest a major success.
More than 8,000 patrons enjoyed succulent food, fine entertainment, arts and crafts, amusement rides and exhibits from businesses and civic groups. Children played in the Wells Fargo children’s area and 150 runners participated in the Marine Federal Credit Union 5K. Illustrating the regional growth of the festival, 40 percent of the booths were occupied by out-of-town vendors.
Onslow Community Outreach is very grateful for our business sponsors, Friends and 120 volunteers who cooked food, served beverages, set up tables and chairs, parked cars and picked up debris.
Oktoberfest provides much needed financial support for the local soup kitchen, homeless shelter and Caring Community Clinic.
