Oktoberfest Main Line

Saturday October 12, 2019 • Noon to 7:30pm

Good Samaritan Field – 212 W. Lancaster Avenue, Paoli, PA

Enjoy a family-friendly Oktoberfest! We have games, pumpkin decorating, face painting, and bouncy-houses for the kids, plus live music, dancing, German food, and a great beer selection for kids-at-heart.

RAIN OR SHINE! We have a great big festival tent, so if we do get a little rain, we won’t let it dampen our fun.

100% of the proceeds go directly to charitable projects. Locally, we support organizations like T&E Care, The ARC of Chester County, and Community Volunteers In Medicine in West Chester. Internationally, we support Rotary programs that provide clean water and sanitation, food, education, disaster relief, and the end of diseases like polio. Learn more about our charitable giving and partners.

Now seeking sponsors! Sponsorship of Oktoberfest is a great way to advertise your business to local community members plus support a great cause at the same time. Donations to our 501c3 are tax-deductable. Do well by doing good! See our Sponsorship Info Packet and Oktoberfest Press Release.
