Edmonds Rotary Takes Oktoberfest Online for a First-Ever Virtual Fundraising Event
Edmonds Rotary announced today that the first-ever Edmonds Virtual Oktoberfest will be held Saturday, October 3rd from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The online Zoom event will take place in lieu of the popular in-person version in 2020 due to COVID-19 public gathering restrictions.
Enjoy beer from Gallaghers’ Where U Brew or local Washington wine from Jeff Boyer Uncorked while participating in a unique Edmonds kind of online event with special appearances from local sports icons and celebrities!
Tickets are on sale now at EdmondsOktoberfest.com. Proceeds will benefit Edmonds Rotary programs and scholarships.
“This is an event that is created specifically for Edmonds and other local residents and business owners to celebrate our special community, while also raising money for an inclusive playground at Civic Park, Edmonds Waterfront Center and scholarships for local students,” said Beth Westenhaver-Kealy, Edmonds Rotary President.
A ticket to the Edmonds Virtual Oktoberfest includes:
* Online viewing link to Edmonds Virtual Oktoberfest
* Two Growlers of beer OR two bottles of wine (or combination of one of each) – you provide the Growlers.
