Looking to extend your summer a little longer? Longing for a few more hours at the shore, rocking out and dancing to The Nerds? Well, why don’t you join us!! Verona’s own Our Lady of Lake Parish Oktoberfest will extend your summer and bring the shore to you! It will be a legendary year for the event that you don’t want to miss!
On Saturday, September 30, Our Lady of the Lake Parish in Verona will once again host the annual Oktoberfest celebration from 6 to 11 p.m. This year, the popular Jersey Shore headline cover band The Nerds will take the famous Oktoberfest stage for one epic night of entertainment. You might have spent several nights at the shore singing and dancing summer nights away with the band. Perhaps you’ve enjoyed them while they’ve played alongside Maroon 5, Train, Harry Connick Jr. or Sheryl Crow or watched them play to a sell out crowd at Carnegie Hall, PNC Bank Arts Center, Lincoln Center or elsewhere? As you might have guessed, N.J. native Jon Bon Jovi has also been known to hop up on the stage to play with the band.
Don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy The Nerds right in your own backyard!

Oktoberfest at Our Lady of the Lake debuted at the Parish in 2010 and has been a popular local community event for all to enjoy, rain or shine. While the festive evening has steadily drawn over 1,600 people in prior years, the planning committee wanted to inject some fresh ideas and energy to the fun for its eighth season. The Nerds, a mainstay of Jersey Shore live entertainment, was an easy idea to run with. Who doesn’t love The Nerds?
The weekend of fun is not just for the the grown-ups! The Oktoberfest/Kinderfest weekend will bring fun for the whole family, which kicks off on Friday, September 29 at 4 p.m. at the annual Kinderfest under the big tent.
