OKTOBERFEST 2018 – an Upper Saddle River community block party.

Lions Park – Saturday, October 6, 1-6 pm

Thank you for participating in Oktoberfest 2017! It was a wonderful community day and great success. We expect an even larger turnout for 2018!

USR Cares  will be the recipient of net proceeds from Sponsorships, Vendor Tables and Raffle Prize Donations. USR Cares was established in 2017 as a community resource organization to assist residents experiencing a temporary or long term crisis. With your support, USR Cares will have the resources to provide financial assistance and to fund other outreach initiatives including companionship, meals and connections to medical services. Many new programs are being introduced in 2018 focusing on senior citizen outreach and community support during and after natural disasters.

At Oktoberfest, an event for Upper Saddle River residents, the park will be set up like a fairground with antique tractors and fall decor. Featured will be themed streets including Health & Wellness Way, Family Fun Area and USR Marketplace with vendors and games. Community and Service organizations will anchor Oktoberfest with activities including a PBA Obstacle Course, Hayrides by our DPW, a Family Scarecrow Contest, and much more! There will be live music, food, and beer & wine.

New for 2018… Girl Scout Gold Award Programs (Wellness Way Workshops & Senior Health and Wellness Expo), and a Car Show!

The entire community will be coming together to support the mission of USR Cares for a fun filled day which will offer businesses like yours a unique opportunity to reach this target market. Over 3,000 attendees are expected. USR Cares Board Members welcome the opportunity to meet with your business to discuss our mission and your partnership in Sponsorship opportunities.
