How To Get There Safe Ride Home


The 49th Four Peaks Oktoberfest is located within Tempe Beach Park, 80 W Rio Salado Parkway. The main entrance is at the northwest corner of Mill Avenue and Rio Salado Parkway. In addition, there are two lakeside entrances for pre-sale or re-entry only (Friday & Saturday), one under the Mill Avenue bridges with the second located under the light rail bridge.

Normal downtown Tempe traffic will be influenced by:
