Oktoberfest Main Line

Saturday October 7, 2023

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

Enjoy a family-friendly Oktoberfest! We have games, pumpkin decorating, face painting, and bouncy-obstacle-courses 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 provide humanitarian service in partnership with organizations like T&E Care, Chester County Food Bank, Ann’s Heart, The ARC of Chester County, and Community Volunteers In Medicine. 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. Do well by doing good! See our Sponsorship Info Packet.
