Our Lady of the Lake Oktoberfest

22 Lakeside Avenue
Verona, NJ 07044


On Saturday, October 16th 2010, Our Lady of the Lake School and Parish held one of the biggest events the Township of Verona has ever seen. Under a 17,000 square foot tent, 1,400 revelers ages 21 to 90, came together to listen to the sounds of a German UmPah Band, feast on traditional German fare, taste a variety of ales from local brewers, dance the night away and win amazing raffle prizes. Ask anyone in Verona and they will smile at the thought of OKTOBERFEST 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2013!

Of course, the best part was the proceeds that benefited the youth and children of the parish as well as numerous important ministries. Our Lady of the Lake School has been nominated as a Blue Ribbon School for 2010-2011, an honor for any learning institution especially a small, private school on a tight budget. Our Lady of the Lake Youth Group participation in the Public High School is over 25%, one of the highest on the East Coast. They have traveled to Kentucky to help build homes for poverty-stricken citizens, and 2011's Oktoberfest proceeds helped them go to New Orleans to help victims of Hurricane Katrina.
