To protect the health and safety of our community, we have cancelled our 2020 Oktoberfest. Instead, we hope you’ll join us for our Chocolate + Cheer virtual chocolate and beer tasting Fri 11/6/2020. We’re grateful for the community’s support of Oktoberfest, and we look forward to returning bigger and better than ever next year!
2021 date to be announced
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 humanitarian charity. 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.
