Berwyn's Oktoberfest presented by Loyola Medicine and MacNeal Hospital is the western suburbs biggest party of the year taking place on Friday, September 20 from 6:00pm to 11:00pm & Saturday, September 21 from Noon to 11:00pm. The event's mid-September kick-off coincides with the original Munich Oktoberfest, which starts on September 21 this year. The event boasts live music, an international food court, carnival and amusement rides, family entertainment pavilion, and crafters and vendors. And let's not forget the Beer Garden, which will feature special Oktoberfest seasonal selections among others!
The event takes place throughout Berwyn's Depot District at the intersection of Windsor Ave & Grove Ave just off the Metra BNSF lines Berwyn station. Free admission. Family friendly.
If devouring a variety of ethnic foods and washing it down with a healthy serving of beer while prosting friends and neighbors sounds good, then Oktoberfest is your answer to the end of summer blues!
