Annual Oktoberfest SUV Drive

September 30 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm


Join us for the Annual Oktoberfest SUV drive! This is a leisurely drive through the wine country and West Hills.

The route is all on paved roads. You may join the drive in your SUV or other favorite Porsche.

The first leg travels on scenic backroads from Beaverton to Carlton Lower Park for a first rest stop. The second leg goes on back roads through the Carlton and Yamhill wine area, then through Cornelius to North Plains for a second rest stop. The third leg leads us up to Skyline in the West Hills , down to Helvetia and then through Bethany towards Forest Heights. The drive ends at the home of Sylvia Nessan and Heinz Holzapfel, who will host a backyard gathering with a Bavarian Oktoberfest BBQ: Pretzels, Grilled Sausages, Sauerkraut, Potato Salad and Bavarian Beer. If it’s raining, we will fit into the garage.

Please plan to arrive by 9am. The mandatory safety meeting will be at 9:15am and we will leave at 9:30am.
