OktoBEARfest — Philadelphia Zoo

OktoBEARfest is back!

Join us for a night of unlimited samples of more than 100 seasonal fall brews and ciders, delicious local food trucks, music, and amazing animals at America’s first zoo.

This adults-only event is limited to those 21 or older with valid identification. OktoBEARfest serves as a fundraiser and supports Philadelphia Zoo in its mission to create joyful discovery and inspire action for animals and habitats.

Sample over 100 different beers and ciders from breweries, including: Paulaner, Sam Adams, Big Oyster Brewery, Evil Genius, and more. Food is available for purchase from the region’s top food trucks, including: BYZ. Empire, The Fabulous Fig, Deke’s BBQ, and more. NEW for this year: the Zoo’s Peacock Pavilion will be transformed into a Bavarian beer tent presented by Samuel Adams Beer with authentic Oktoberfest beers on tap and a stein-holding contest! OktoBEARfest will also include live performances by local DJs and Philly’s #1 Oktoberfest Polka band, Polkadelphia.
