About Orlando Oktoberfest:

The Orlando Oktoberfest is a Not-for-Profit entity. All proceeds from the Orlando Oktoberfest benefit a local organization, Diana’s Friends and Easter Seals Camp Challenge. Our mission is to organize family friendly festivals in Central Florida that do not limit individuals with any physical disability from participating in all experiences at our events. The Orlando Oktoberfest is an ADA immersive event.

Our Story and Mission:

Twenty years ago, our owner, Jim Boyle and his wife had a daughter, Diana, born with cerebral palsy. Through the years they faced challenges with health insurance companies, therapists, facilities, and found the care needed for Diana was not adequate. Jim took matters into his own hands and created the charity, Diana’s Friends. There are thousands of children in the Central Florida area and hundreds of thousands all across the country afflicted with Cerebral Palsy and other neuromuscular disorders either from birth or subsequently acquired from traumatic brain injury. Unfortunately, finding the means to get quality therapy whether it is the facility, the therapist, or the funds is very difficult for most families. Diana’s Friends, Inc raises funds and spends % directly on helping children receive intensive therapy that will change their lives for the better.

Most of these same children attend Easter Seals Camp Challenge in Sorrento, FL each summer. Our camp provides a unique experience for children and adults with disabilities and special needs to have the opportunity to actively participate in camping activities, engage in social interaction with peers and achieve life changing experiences.  From campfires to hiking on the nature trail to climbing the high ropes course, campers engage in a variety of enriching outdoor activities in a natural Florida setting. Camp Challenge reaches out to those people with disabilities and special needs, and provides them with opportunities to do things they never imagined possible. It really is a place where “dreams come true”.
