Aurora Colony Day Beer Garden

5 p.m. - 11 p.m.

Aurora Colony Museum Courtyard

Free admission, with pay-as-you-go food and drink.


Featuring the Timothy James Band

Enjoy beer and brats in the Aurora Colony Beer Garden to kick off Aurora Colony Days. Old Aurora’s famous German hospitality will live again in our family-friendly Beer Garden in the courtyard of the museum, Friday night only. Sip a brew, enjoy brats and curly fries from Ebner’s, and listen to live music from the Timothy James Band, fresh from the Waterfront Blues Festival and the Journey to Memphis competition. There’ll be ice cream too, and beverages for kids of all ages.

Previously this event has been held at the Octagon Building, but construction of our new Will Family Preservation & Research Center gives us a chance to bring the Beer Garden to the lovely setting of our museum courtyard.
