Oktoberfest at the Lincoln Park Zoo

September 16, 2023 | 6:30 PM - 10:00 PM

Pretzels and polka and beer, oh my! Oktoberfest at the Zoo is the all-new beer fest that’ll help you kick off the fall season. Don’t drink beer? No problem. Wine, seltzers, cocktails, and non-alcoholic beverages will also be available! Bring your lederhosen and get ready for the “Prost” with the most at Lincoln Park Zoo.

At this adults-only (21+) evening, guests can enjoy adult beverages, pretzels, bratwursts, and more while viewing the zoo's lush gardens and dynamic animal habitats for more than 170 species. Die Musikmeisters, Chicago’s No. 1 German Band, will perform on Main Mall. Meanwhile, a live DJ gets the party going on South Lawn for those looking to dance the night away! Don’t expect kids or strollers—this event is for adults only. Take a break from your usual routine and do something different; spend a night celebrating with your friends!
