Oktoberfest to return to Ardmore this year as commissioners give OK to open liquor – Mainline Media News

LOWER MERION – The Octoberfest will return to Armor this fall after the Lower Merion Board of Commissioners agreed to waive the town’s ordinances on open possession of alcohol.

During this week’s Building and Planning Committee meeting, the Board of Directors approved a waiver to allow beneficiaries to own open containers of alcohol “in public road rights within a regulated area of ​​Schauffele Plaza and part of Cricket Terrace.”

The event takes place on September 24, between 2pm and 8pm. Rainfall is scheduled for September 25, between 2 PM and 8 PM

The Ardmore Initiative will also provide the required certificate of insurance required by the town.

The event is implemented by the Ardmore Initiative and is held at Schauffele Plaza and the adjacent local car park between Lancaster Street and Cricket Terrace Parking.

“We appreciate your support in this. This is a long-term event that has been going on, I believe, for 13 years,” said Nancy Scarlato, Executive Director of the Ardmore Initiative.

According to Scarlato, this year will be roughly the thirteenth year that the event will be held and will include people approved to verify ID cards.

“Hopefully, after two years of not having a real festival, he’ll be back for a real street festival as we focus on expanding into other businesses in Ardmore. So we appreciate the support and ability to provide an event for Ardmore and visitors,” Scarlato said.

According to town officials, the adjacent portion of the Cricket Terrace and the Cricket Terrace parking lot will be used for family-friendly music and activities.

“These activities outside the beer garden area are free and open to the public. The remainder of Cricket Terrace and South Cricket Terrace will remain open and accessible from Cricket Avenue and Lancaster Avenue via the alley between Schauffele Plaza Lot 6 and Bella Italia, according to a staff memo.

Commissioner Josh Grimes said events such as the Oktoberfest are beneficial to the community.

“I think it’s definitely good for the Ardmore community to have events like this and revive things a little bit as other events like bike racing do,” said Grimes.
