Saturday, October 06, 2018 • 12:00pm to 8:00pm

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

Rotary Club of the Upper Main Line’s Annual Oktoberfest is a family-friendly event. 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 all you 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.
