Description

Join us for the 4th annual Evanston Oktoberfest! Come out with friends and family to enjoy an afternoon of beer tasting, delicious local food, live music and beautiful fall weather!

Held at the Evanston Farmers Market location (intersection of Oak Ave. and University Place), you can sample more than 40 different styles of craft beer and hard cider from favorite local and regional breweries.

The tickets not only get you access to great craft beer and live music, but you also get to raise your glass and support a fantastic non-profit organization -- Downtown Evanston works year round to keep downtown vibrant, fun and thriving!
