A Toast to October!

Water Street will be celebrating the coming of Fall all month, and you won’t want to miss it.

Oktoberfest kicks off Friday, October 1 in the SixtyFour – Wine Bar & Kitchen Weingarten Tent and continues through October 14th with live music, authentic German cuisine, dinner specials and a rotating selection of German-style beers.

The annual Downtown Wine Walk invites you to wander designated stores throughout Downtown, including Water Street stops on Sunday October 3.  Enjoy music, wine tasting and small snacks. And if the rain dampens your spirits, we have plenty of friendly indoor spirits in restaurants along Water Street to warm you up. You must buy wine walk  tickets in advance, and they go fast!  Visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fall-downtown-naperville-wine-walk-2021-tickets-171439348707 for tickets.  The event benefits Arranmore Arts.

Ready to check out new holiday fashions, accessories and gifts?  London Skye has you covered with their Ladies Lunch and Fashion Show from noon- 2 pm on Friday, October 22 at Santo Cielo.  The event also includes showing of goodies from Lauren Rae and Karisma Boutique.  You’ll enjoy a complimentary glass of champagne with your reservation.  Contact Santo Cielo to reserve your seat or table and join some friends for a great afternoon!

Welcome Ben & Jerry’s Naperville for Caramel Apple Cider Shakes, new ice cream flavors and specialty cakes for every occasion.  Or pop into Sparrow Coffee, voted Naperville’s BEST coffee shop by Naperville magazine readers, for new baked goods, quiche and a local Pumpkin Spice Latte.

As the kids start dreaming of ghosts, goblins and treats, join us for Family Fall Fest on Saturday, October 30 from noon-3. Kiddos under 12 can pick a free pumpkin of assorted sizes from our socially distant pumpkin patch on Foyo Plaza, attend a performance of Sparks Not-So-Spooky Stories from the puppet stage on the Naperville Township parking lot at 12:30 or 1L30, meet the stilt walker and balloon twister, try a hands-on wacky science project outside London Skye and snag a mini treat bag and Halloween- themed face mask perfect for trick or treating!  Event is free.
