Happy September, Summerville! We hope all of our younger patients have been enjoying their first few weeks back at school. We also hope they have or are planning on having their back to school cleanings, too! As we are now settling into the Lowcountry’s fall months there are so many exciting things to look forward to. One of our particular favorites is the Summerville Rotary Oktoberfest!! Break out your lederhosen and knee socks, it’s time to celebrate! Everyone is so excited, there is even a countdown to the event on the official Oktoberfest website!!
This family-friendly celebration will be on October 5th from 12 to 6 pm. This year will be the very first Oktoberfest that will be in downtown Summerville in Hutchinson Square. The Rotary is very excited about this! This year it will be hosted by the Summerville Evening Rotary Club and the Summerville Oakbrook Rotary club as a joint fundraiser. There are so many fun things to look forward to, including:
Games, music, food, and of course BEER!
A chicken dance competition, stein hoisting, a brat eating contest, best beer belly contest, and an award for the best German costume!
A Castle Jump!
Admission is free, but all food and beer are extra. To have any beer, you must buy the provided beer buys and beer tickets either ahead of time or at the festival itself and be 21 or older. The Rotary does ask that there are no pets, coolers, or glassware at the event. You can purchase mugs and beer tickets online, which will help you avoid lines at the event. When you arrive, just head to the Check ID stand and all of your goodies will be waiting for you there.
With all of this excitement heading our way, do you know about all the incredible work our Rotary does? The funds from this and all of their fundraisers go to support charities on a local, national, and international level. These charities focus on literacy, fighting hunger, research for diseases like Alzheimer’s, providing clean water, and more. All of these charities do need year-round funding, so your donations matter – and are needed when you can give.
Your contributions to the Rotary during this event and all of their events are 100% tax-deductible. Along with your purchase of mugs and beer tokens, you can buy sponsor packages on their website.
We are so excited for this year’s celebration and can’t wait to share some delicious food, beer, and community with you! To learn more, you can find the event and the Summerville Rotary on Facebook.
