6th Annual Star & Shield Foundation OKTOBERFEST!
October 13 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Oktoberfest is at hand and you’re invited to celebrate in style! Enjoy craft beer from Angel City Brewery, exotic grilled sausage from Wurstküche and an afternoon of fun in the heart of downtown LA’s Art District. The event is hosted by the L.A. County Professional Peace Officers Association (PPOA) and proceeds benefit the Star & Shield Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable organization established by PPOA members in order to support the families of fallen officers and other worthy causes.
We’re excited to return to Angel City Brewery — a true leader in the LA craft beer scene! Per tradition, this event will be packed with fun, including multiple contests conducted by our friendly Oktoberfest damsels. Join us for a great time and a great cause!
