Crisp winds start to blow as piles of leaves litter the ground and bright orange pumpkins begin popping up in decorations around the neighborhood. What does all of this mean? It’s October, and what better way to start the month than at Post Falls’ Annual Oktoberfest Celebration!
On October 7 head over to Q’Emiln Park, 12365 N. Parkway Drive in Post Falls, from 5 to 8:30pm for an Oktoberfest celebration like no other. The Post Falls Community Volunteers are gathering together to bring the community a taste of Germany with an authentic German meal of bratwurst, sauerkraut and German Potato salad, along with a selection of beer and wine, as they raise money for the Post Falls Historical Society. To further contribute to the fundraising efforts, the evening will also include live entertainment, raffles, and both a live and silent auction filled with amazing treats for everyone to bid on.
This annual event started 22 years ago in an effort to help the local historical society find a permanent location for a local museum. The Post Falls Historical Society, Inc. is a non-profit corporation that was created in 1988 with the purpose of protecting and preserving the historical heritage of the Post Falls area while they also shared and recorded the area’s history for others to enjoy. In 2009, the Society was able to secure a permanent location for the Post Falls Museum and the funds they raise now are being used to to help keep the museum open for the public to enjoy so that they may learn more about Post Falls’ colorful history.
So grab your stein and head to the park for an enjoyable celebration that will fill you up as it helps open up the doors of history to many more generations.
