It’s no secret in Zionsville that when it comes to October, Traders Point Creamery’s annual Oktoberfest is something to mark on the calendar. This year, the event is from noon to 7 p.m., Oct. 11 in the Traders Point Rural Historic District.
“Our Oktoberfest is so popular,” said Gail Alden, the director of marketing and special events at TPC. “And at the same time, it’s a great fundraiser for the Traders Point Rural Historic District, a non-profit organization that protects over 2,600 acres of green space around Eagle Creek for the enjoyment of generations to come. The fundraiser has donated over $120,000 to the Traders Point Rural Historic District, one of only three designated in Indiana.”
There will be live music, and lots of what Alden calls “family fun,” including “some amazing food,” a German-style biergarten, a Sun King Brewery biergarten, wine tastings, hayrides, face painting, pony rides,and a pumpkin patch.
Two bands will perform, with the Tad Robinson Band scheduled from noon until 3 p.m., and Polka Boy playing from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Cost is $10 per person, and children under 10 years old are admitted free. Visit www.traderspointcreamery.com or call 733-1700 for more information. The creamery is at 9101 Moore Rd. in Zionsville.
