Kegel’s Inn Cancels 2020 ‘Milwaukee’s First Oktoberfest’ Celebration
Opportunity remains to donate to West Milwaukee Lions Club
WEST ALLIS, Wis. (August 7, 2020) – Unfortunate, but not surprising due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Kegel’s Inn in West Allis has made the difficult decision to cancel its 8th annual Oktoberfest celebration which benefits the West Milwaukee Lions Club.
“This weekend is always one of our favorite times of the year, but we could not in good faith hold this event while we are still in a pandemic,” said Julian Kegel, owner and operator of Kegel’s Inn. “We are committed to hold this festival again next year and have it be bigger and better than ever.”
A portion of proceeds from the festival are donated to the West Milwaukee Lions Club. With the festival being cancelled this year, Kegel’s and the Lions Club have set up a Go Fund Me page for those who are inclined to support the charity.
Kegel’s Inn is open Wednesday through Saturday from 4-8 p.m. and on Friday, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. German Specialties will be served by a waitress either inside the dining room or outside in the beer garden. Customers may also pre-order for pickup at KegelsInn.com.
“While we are saddened that our signature event will not happen this summer, we are still open to the public and have procedures in place that keep our staff and patrons safe,” said Kegel. “Come on over for our fantastic German specialties or a fish fry and spend some time in socially distancing with a great brew in our outdoor beer garden.”
