Join us for beer sampling and family fun to kick off fall!
Local vendors will be stationed around the concert lawn offering free samples of Oregon beers for the grown-ups, and family activities include live music, dancing, lawn games and fun crafts for kids.
Adults can enjoy samples from Oregon beer vendors, and families can dance to live music from the European Take-Out Band (11 a.m. to 1 p.m.) and the Michael Fischer Trio (1:30 to 4 p.m.), check out a Wildlife Live! meet and greet, witness the Unipiper wheeling past and enjoy snacks like Elephant Ears.
Bring your appetite for lunch: There will be German-inspired fare including Bavarian pretzels, Bier Bratwurst and Cheddarwurst, along with some of Portland’s favorite food carts at the event.
The event is between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. and is free with zoo admission, which means free for zoo members.
Parking costs $2/hour or $8/day and lots tend to fill up quickly, so the zoo encourages visitors to take public transport: Take MAX Light Rail to the Washington Park stop or a TriMet bus. Call 503-238-RIDE (7433) or visit trimet.org for fare and route information. Visitors who ride MAX light rail or a TriMet bus to the zoo will receive $1.50 off admission with proof of ridership.
