Welcome the fall season with traditional German culture. For two days, Naper Settlement will transform into a Bavarian festival with Naperville’s Oktoberfest, featuring live music (ranging from polka to classic rock and country), German food, and, of course, beer!

The event is child-friendly, and will feature children’s activities from 12-5 on Saturday afternoon. Past festivals have featured do-it-yourself arts and crafts projects, interactive demonstrations, and children’s entertainment.

All proceeds from this event benefit the Naperville Heritage Society.


Parking is available in the Municipal Parking Garage on the corner of Eagle and Aurora or at the Settlement parking lot at Porter Avenue and Webster Street.


  • Advanced tickets are $10 for adults (13+) and seniors
  • $5 for children (4-12)
  • Children under 4 are FREE.

Advance sales end at noon on October 3.  This event is considered a special event, so no free passes to residents are available.  Admission includes touring the Settlement.  Purchase tickets here.

Day-of tickets are $15 for adults (13+) and seniors, and $10 for children (4-12).  Children under 4 are FREE.

Rotarians: get in FREE on Friday from 4-6PM.  Wear your pin for entry!
