Where: Encinal Yacht Club, 1251 Pacific Marina, Alameda, CA
When: Saturday, September 21st at 12 PM
What: Enough with the refreshing roses and cocktails--it's time to bring out our favorite fall drinks!
The Fall Festival at the Encinal Yacht Club will be a fun, family-friendly space for us to celebrate the changing seasons. It will feature drinks from famous Bay Area breweries and wineries, such as Anchor Brewing Company from San Francisco and Urban Legend Cellars from Alameda.
In addition to drinks, participate in a raffle for prizes like bikes, dinners and more and test our your hand at corn-hole. Corn-hole is a game where players toss resin-filled bags into holes cut into a raised platform. While not scientifically proven, many can vouch that your aim improves after a few drinks, so be sure to pair this activity with a cold one!
All of this is organized to support Alameda Meals on Wheels. This organization proudly serves the vulnerable in our community. Everyday, holidays included, volunteers deliver a midday meal to those who cannot prepare one for themselves. Since recipients are charged on a sliding basis, Alameda Meals on Wheels relies primarily on donations from local donors and on events like these for funding. You can learn more about them here.
The festival will take place at the Encinal Yacht Club, which features gorgeous views of Oakland. The third-oldest yacht club in the Bay historically made a name for itself with famous parties, often held under the moonlight. Built in 1890, the club has endured economic crises while still holding onto its traditions. You can find out more about its history here.
If you can't make it, you can still visit the Club for other events. Upcoming celebrations include the Country Music End of Summer Bash and the Commodore's Cup. The Club has a history of hosting family-friendly parties, and chances are that these upcoming events will be as well. Here is a full calendar.
