It's like OKTOBERFEST...but sooner!

What's Mocktoberfest?

Can't get enough Mayofest / didn't make it this year? Welcome to Mocktoberfest!

Mocktoberfest is Mayofest's little brother. An event celebrating all things Oktoberfest.... but not in October.

Great food, great music and of course great beer! Come out and celebrate with us and share a meal!

This year we will be having a harvest potluck on the Saturday. Bring something to share from your garden or maybe your favorite fall dish :)



Come volunteer for Mocktoberfest! Email volunteer@mayofest.org for details!


How do I get to Mayofest?

Getting to Mayofest is really about getting into a state of mind. You have to be ready for adventure and have an open mind (and a tolerance for dirt roads).

Important points:

  • Please don't be drinking and driving before the festival. We're not sure who would do this but please don't, it's really dumb.
  • The drive from the turn off from the highway to the Mayofest site is bumpy, rough dirt road and is not friendly to lowered cars. Please keep that in mind when thinking about if your car can make the journey..  
  • We have 2 parking areas, which are staffed by volunteer security. Please do not park on the highway! It's a really bad idea and it can get us in trouble with the city.

Step 1: Drive to French Road, Mayo, QC:

Drive here (tap / click the red point on the map to navigate there. Or follow this link: Google maps) :


Step 2: Drive down French Road until you get to event site.

  1. From the 315, turn onto French road (this is the rough dirt road mentioned above).
  2. Keep right at every fork until you see a sign saying "Slow your Ass Down".
  3. ...Slow your ass down...it's a little bumpy here.
  4. You'll find the first of 2 parking lots down the hill. For large events you may be met by our parking lot volunteers who will help you with parking as well as unloading your stuff. You may also be directed to drive to the second parking lot. 
  5. You will be picked up by our Mayofest transport, that will take you and your gear from the parking area to the site.

You're here! Now what?

Check in at the Tuck Shop to get your Mayofest bracelet and get all the important info for the weekend. If you haven't pre-registered online or bought your entrance the Tuck Shop is where you register and pay for your admission. You can also get your Mayobucks there. 


We have a lake!


A Zipline!

A Waterslide

Treehouses and pods!

And of course, FIRE!
