Oktoberfest

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Join the Penn Chair Travelers on a festive trip to Germany and the famous Bier Halls.  We will be serving ‘bier and brezels to celebrate the occasion.

Irene and Arthur Rodgers have some fascinating tales of their adventures in Germany.

The Rodgers will share their experiences at this 16-day folk festival held in Munich, Bavaria, Germany, running from mid or late September to the first weekend in October, with more than 6 million people from around the world attending the event every year. Locally, it is often called the Wiesn, after the colloquial name for the fairgrounds, Theresa’s meadows (Theresienwiese). The Oktoberfest is an important part of Bavarian culture, having been held since the year 1810. Other cities across the world also hold Oktoberfest celebrations that are modeled after the original Munich event.

A suggested $5 donation to the Newtown Library Company is requested to offset the cost of refreshments provided after each presentation.

Please reserve your seat by calling the Library at (215)968-7659 or emailing librarian@newtownlibrary.com or stopping in to sign up.

 

 

A free will donation is welcome to cover our expenses for the evening.
