The Craft Show at DNC Fall Festival (Oktoberfest) features a high quality craft show with crafters bringing their handmade crafts in many medias. It’s a great place for holiday shopping, for gifts, or for items for your own use and enjoyment.

Also, back by popular demand, we will have the canoe rides once again!  Check back for more details.  While at the fair visit the Demarest Nature Center and environmental information tables.

The Craft Show at Oktoberfest began in 1981, as “OKTOBERFEST,” an outdoor produce market where farmers from New Jersey, New York state and Connecticut would bring their fall harvest to sell at an open air market. As the local farms began to disappear, the farm stands were gradually replaced by “crafters.”

Today, the Craft Show at Oktoberfest features up to 75 quality crafters from the tri-state area showing a variety of crafts including: wood crafts, photography, pottery, paintings, a wide array of hand made jewelry, nostalgic art, doll clothes, crocheted creations, hand painted furniture, holiday items and much more.

The show still maintains its historic “Fest” flavor with German music and German food. Korean food delights are also offered. A bake table as well as other specialty food items can be found throughout the show. There are even canoe rides on the pond.

The Demarest Duck Pond is well known as one of Bergen Countys more picturesque venues. It is located at the intersection of Piermont Road and Hardenburgh Avenue in Demarest. The beautiful town of Demarest is surrounded by Haworth, Alpine, Tenafly and Closter.

Advertising for this event will be done through major and local newspapers, flyers and other publications. Signs will be posted throughout the borough and posters prominently displayed.
