6:30pm | The Watershed Center

The theme for the 2017 Fest is SHED, RATTLE and ROLL: A Fabulous Fifties Affair. What are the ’50s? Great balls of fire! Do you have to ask? They are Dwight Eisenhower, Grace Kelly, Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Marilyn Monroe, Cary Grant, Leave it to Beaver and Sputnik all rolled into one fantastic decade.

Last year’s OktoberFest raised more than $110,000 to support the Watershed’s mission to keep water clean, safe and healthy and protect and restore Central New Jersey’s water and natural environment through conservation, advocacy, science, and education.  With your help, we look forward to achieving our ambitious goal of surpassing last year’s successful event.

The joint will start jumpin’ at 6:30 pm on October 14th at the Watershed Center. We’ll begin the evening in Gorrie Hall with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and our silent auction, followed by dinner prepared by Chambers Walk and live auction under the tent.

Join in the fun by wearing ’50s garb of your choosing: Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend? Happy Days? Grease? Rock Around the Clock? Rebel Without a Cause? That’s the $64,000 Question... Our mission depends on the generosity of cool cats like you. So, whatever attire you choose (Wellies will always be welcome), declare ”I Like Ike” and register on Bidpal to buy your tickets now!
