Oktoberfest at Memorial Park!
Don’t miss our third annual Oktoberfest celebration on Sunday, October 6th from 1pm to 8pm!
A change in venue to Memorial Park in Riverside means the event will be bigger and better than ever.
We’ll be turning Memorial Park into a German beer hall with a special tapping of our Oktoberfest brews, live oompah music, German food, food trucks and traditional beer competitions and games.
Oktoberfest 2013 is a fundraiser for the Memorial Park Association and all proceeds will go to the organization.
The event has sold out the past two years so make sure to get your tickets before they’re gone.
