Oktoberfest returns for fourth year

Pig Roast At Ram’s Head




Oktoberfest comes to the Ram’s Head Inn on Shelter Island on Sunday, October 13, from 1 to 5 PM. There will be a pig roast, live music by Points East Band, and a buffet from 1:30 to 3 PM.

The fourth annual event supports the Island Gift of Life Foundation and all tickets purchased will be entered for raffles for a chance at a prize basket worth $250 filled with local goods and certificates.

“We are thrilled to be hosting the fourth annual Ram’s Head Inn Oktoberfest in support of the Island Gift of Life Foundation. This foundation, now in its 18th year, provides crucial support to our neighbors battling life threatening illnesses. We are proud to offer a chance to our guests to come have a fun day with traditional Oktoberfest offerings while getting a chance to learn about what this important foundation strives to do for our community year after year,” said Linda Eklund, owner of Ram’s Head Inn.

Ram’s Head has provided 40 years’ worth of onsite farm-to-table service under the ownership of James and Linda Eklund. Chef Joe Smith, who has worked at Wölffer Kitchen and Frisky Oyster, adjusts the flavors of the menu to the seasons, matching local ingredients to the farms of the region.

Tickets to Oktoberfest are $40 for adults or $20 for children under eight. Ram’s Head Inn is located at 108 Ram Island Drive on Shelter Island. For tickets, go to www.theramsheadinn.com.
