Octoberfest in September? Poway Days beer focused event Septemberfest taking place on September 16th at Poway Community Park

Great news! We no longer have to wait until October to partake in Octoberfest festivities. Poway Days is a three weekend event showcasing the best of Poway’s performers, artisans, eateries, culture and more. After seeing a list of all the events happening over the three weekends, the event that peaked our interest the most is called Septemberfest. This beer focused event will be held on Saturday, September 16th from 4:00-8:00pm at Poway Community Park. The goal is to bring Poway and the San Diego community together to enjoy simple pleasures such as craft beer, music, cars and art.

There will be plenty of entertainment as well. Take a stroll to check out the mean and pristine hot rods and muscle cars at the Madame Mechanic Classic Car Show. You can then take a look at the local art scene as you make your way through the local artists booths. Some of the art will be available for purchase, if you feel so inclined. Septemberfest will also name the winners of their So You Think You Can Sing finale. You’ll definitely want to practice your best Simon Cowell impression as your vote will help choose a winner.
