Killer Pumpkin Fest Presented By Brewpublic
October 17, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 11:55 pm
What can we say? If you like pumpkin craft beer, you’re going to once again LOVE this event hosted by the Green Dragon pub. All things pumpkin, including pumpkin foodie treats, the beloved pumpkin smashing festivities, and more pumpkin beers than you can shake a stick at (well over 40 locked in so far!).
The Dragon has a permit to close SE 9th Ave down to traffic in order to make room for surplus family pumpkin fun. This will again be Portland’s biggest pumpkin party. And make sure to be there when Elysian Brewing brings its Pumpkin Roadshow and its enormous pumpkin to be tapped that is full of one of nine Elysian’s pumpkin beers. Don’t miss it!
Throughout the day expect some set events outside in front of Green Dragon. Here are the scheduled events and the corresponding times.
