Nothing says Fall like October, from the changing of the leaves to pumpkins ripening on the vine and nothing says Community like the River District.

On Saturday, October 5th, the River District Neighbourhood Centre located at 8683 Kerr Street, Vancouver, is hosting Octoberfestival, a free, family-friendly afternoon event with something for everyone. 

Come out and join in the fun as it’s an event you won’t want to miss.  

Be entertained by The Rheinlander Oompah Pah band who will be playing tunes in true German Oktoberfest style, participate in Science World’s fall-themed demonstrations on how to create a “Self Carving” pumpkin, a Musical Vegetable Piano and a Cloud / Ghost in a bottle and take home some hand-made Fall crafts made by your little people. 

And let’s don’t forget about the beverages.  Romer’s located at the town centre right beside the Neighbourhood Centre will be having a Octoberfestival beer special, where you can get any 3 beers of your choice for only $5.00 until 4pm. plus offering some tasty bites. They’ll also be handing out some tasty Oktoberfest bites for you to munch on.  and Everything Wine, located a picturesque 10 minute walk away in the River District’s Town Centre, will be having seasonal beer tastings. Featuring a special selection of beers. 

Hope to see you at River District’s Octoberfestival Saturday October 5th!
