Each night, all tips collected at the beverage tents benefit a local organization. Tips on Friday benefit the Naperville American Legion, and Saturday’s tips will go to the Naperville Woman’s Club.

At Naper Nights, attendees can snap a picture next to a giant vinyl record photo-op and participate in a social media contest for the chance to win two tickets to the museum’s Oktoberfest, a festival featuring German cuisine, beer, live music, and activities. To enter the contest, participants must take a picture by the photo-op and then post it on Facebook or Instagram with #NaperNights.
