Niles Oktoberfest
Love Niles? Love Beer? Love Music? Want to help fund Niles Main Street Association for 2017 and beyond, and provide food and gifts for children, seniors, and families in need during the holidays? Then rush to get your tickets for the second Niles Oktoberfest on October 8th from 2:00pm to 6:00pm, to be held in the charming front garden of Niles’ historic Shinn House, located in Shinn Park on Peralta Blvd.

Come see this Niles treasure. The history books say it once stood near Niles Third Street Park and Shinn Pond. It was later moved across the creek where it served as the Shinn family home until it was donated as a park in the 1960’s.
