5th Annual Black Forest Biergarten Fundraiser
Friday, August 11th, 2023
6:30pm – 9:00pm*
Black Forest Community Center & Log School Park
12530 Black Forest Road
We are excited to bring the 5th Annual Biergarten Fundraiser to the Black Forest again this year. The 2023 Black Forest Biergarten is a night out with music, beer and fun.
We are turning our fundraising efforts to the Black Forest Community Center and the “Love the Logs” project.
The Community Center is a log structure built by the Black Forest community in 1926 with logs donated from local families. The logs need to be maintained and we are raising money to re-stain the logs and repair or replace any wood that is damaged or rotting. The Community Center is a pivotal force in the heart of our unique Black Forest community. With your help, we can keep the Community Center available to all for another 90+ years!
2023 Black Forest Biergarten General Admission tickets are $25 and include musical entertainment from Wirewood Station,
a party bag, a custom souvenir glass from the event, (4) tickets for 2-ounce sample pours,
and (2) 8-oz pour drink tickets for a fill of the glass with your choice of beer, or beers, from one of our featured breweries.
