Pepsi Designated Driver Program 

The Pepsi Designated Driver Program is available in many of our Festhallen. After registering at the Festhallen, the Designated Driver can enjoy free Pepsi while in the hall. 

RIDE Program Couon Book

As part of our commitment to ensure that Festival patrons get home safely, Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest supports the Waterloo Regional Police and OPP RIDE program. An estimated 8,000 drivers will be screened through this initiative, and on successfully passing the process, will receive a booklet jam-packed with gifts and discount coupons provided by our many sponsors.
