After careful consideration with the participating organizations regarding the health and safety of everyone in our community – the five Rotary Clubs of Staten Island and Rolling Thunder Chapter 2 New York have made the difficult decision to cancel the highly anticipated Staten Island Oktoberfest, scheduled September 26, 2020, at Pouch Scout Camp.

Following continued concerns about the COVID-19 virus, we felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented time. We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this event for our community. But we know it’s the right decision based on the information we have today. Although Staten Island Oktoberfest is canceled, the Staten Island Rotary Clubs are continuing to pursue their goal of raising the much-needed funds to support the mission of Rolling Thunder Chapter 2 New York and Staten Island’s Veterans. Anyone who would like to make a donation to our veterans in place of the support you would have made onsite are welcome to do so, with our sincerest gratitude.

We thank everyone for their continued support of Staten Island Oktoberfest and the organization’s missions. The event will come back bigger and stronger than ever in 2021, scheduled for Saturday, September 25 at its new home, Pouch Scout Camp.

Come support our veterans while having fun with your friends, family, and community. The five Rotary Clubs of Staten Island in partnership with Rolling Thunder Chapter 2 New York are proud to bring Staten Island Oktoberfest to Pouch Scout Camp for the first tme in five years.

The 5th Annual Staten Island Oktoberfest held in memory of Bernard Del Rey, the late former president of the Mid-Island Rotary Club, who was instrumental in organizing the first Staten Island Oktoberfest, is slated to continue its tradition on Saturday September 25, 2021 at its new venue.
