Put the 'Pub' in Public Garden: Oktoberfest 2020 - Saturday, October 24

Saturday, October 24 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm


According to Ben Franklin, "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." So grab your favorite beer drinking friends and come to Reeves-Reed Arboretum on Saturday, October 24, when Put the 'PUB' in Public Garden turns the Arboretum into a beer garden with OKTOBERFEST 2020!

Not only will there be plenty of beer, bratwurst and pretzels, but the popular oompah band, Doppelgänger, will return this year donned in German attire to set the atmosphere for an afternoon of fun in the garden.
Oktoberfest attire highly encouraged! There will be special prizes for best costumes.

If beer is not your beverage of choice, a limited amount of German/Austrian wine and other non-beer options will be available.

Oktoberfest 2020 is a fundraiser for the Arboretum. Admission to the afternoon's flavorful festivities is $100 per person with a special RRA member rate of $75 per person for a limited time. Purchases of 8 or more people in one transaction will guarantee a reserved table for your party. Admission includes bottomless beer, a bratwurst, and a pretzel. You must be 21 and over to attend the Oktoberfest.
