OKTOBERFEST | Brookfield Zoo Invites You Out September 25 & 26


Show off your best lederhosen and enjoy live Polka music at Brookfield Zoo during this year’s Oktoberfest, presented by Leinenkugel’s. “Prost!” (Cheers!) to the season with authentic food, beer, and music on Saturday and Sunday, September 25 and 26.

Zoogoers can visit the Beer Garden on Brookfield Zoo’s East Mall from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. to find Leinenkugel’s Oktoberfest beer. Guests can also purchase fall favorite fare from a selection of seasonal menu items such as bratwurst, sausages, pretzels with beer cheese, and more. Guests over 21 years old who spot the Leinie’s PolkaPedi may be treated to some complimentary memorabilia.
