UNYHA Oktoberfest

September 26th, 2018 - Posted in Events

UNYHA’s Annual Oktoberfest is Saturday October 6th, 2018 at Creekside Lodge in Ellison Park from 11 AM to 9 PM.

Join us for our annual Oktoberfest celebration this year! Great fun for the whole family! Set in beautiful Ellison Park just east of 590 at Blossom Road, there are plenty of hiking trails, ponds, and playgrounds for everyone to enjoy. And lest we forget, the great beer and food! Also, bathrooms and parking are both right nearby this year.

Activities to include:

  • Chili Cook-off (Meat, Vegetarian, and Chicken categories)
  • Sausages from Swan’s Market
  • Informal beer beauty contest. Prizes awarded for Best German Beer, Best other beer, and best cider/mead.
  • Bottle Share
  • Kegs generously donated from local breweries

Cost is an extremely reasonable $5 but this is a Pot-luck type of event, so we do ask that you bring a dish to pass to feed approximately 5-7 people.

We hope to see you there!
