Oktoberfest Flushing Style: Sauerkraut & Kimchi
Saturday, October 2, 5:30-8:30pm Rain Date: Sunday, October 3, 2:30 – 5:30pm

If you missed Oktoberfest in Munich, come join us in Flushing.

Oktoberfest Flushing Style is an evening of warm hospitality, served up with music, good eats and tasty brew.  It is also a fun and affordable fundraiser for the Museum. We’ve made a few adjustments in effort to reduce health risks.

There’s a special menu with the generous help of Manor Oktoberfest along with a sampler of Korean dishes from wonderful neighborhood purveyors, uniting two culinary traditions that feature humble pickled cabbage. And, we’ll add some extra room around outdoor tables for dining. House tours will be available, but this will basically be an outdoor event.

Bring friends or come on your own. Linger in the twilight in a bountiful garden, and help support the Museum.  The Fest is cancelled if it rains all weekend.  All  inclusive admission $30/$25 for members.  Reservations suggested as seating is limited. No advance sales.
