Oktoberfest San Diego 2016

Thu, 6th Oct 2016

Oktoberfest...time to party! Not that we need an excuse to party, but Oktoberfest in San Diego is as good as an excuse as any. If wearing lederhosen and dancing to German polka music is not your thing, don't worry. Oktoberfest is much more than that, in fact, there's tons of beer involved and bratwurst too, what's not to like about that?! While Oktoberfest is usually the first weekend in October, there are still plenty of Oktoberfest spots in San Diego to hit up this weekend! Where's your spot?

Oktoberfest in El Cajon

Hosted by German Club San Diego, this Oktoberfest celebration seems pretty authentic and fun, too. There's a band straight outta Germany providing the tunes where you can get your chicken dance on after a few German beers of course. Feel free to stuff your face with bratwurst, potato salad, potato pancakes, sauerkraut, red cabbage, pretzels and other German delights. 

Ocean Beach Oktoberfest

Funky town comes alive with lederhosen and bratwurst-eating contests! Head to Ocean Beach this weekend and get into the Oktoberfest vibe. There'll be live bands, plenty of bratwurst eating, and of course, steins filled with authentic Bavarian beer ready to be guzzled down in the mid-day sun. I know it sounds weird, but there's a sausage toss going on too. All in good fun!

Craftoberfest at Liberty Public Market

Well, it's not quite German, but there is some Oktoberfest-inspired fare going on at the Craftoberfest at Liberty Public Market. The good news is that there'll be plenty of Oktoberfest craft beer selections as well as beer pairings and tastings. Plenty of good food everywhere. Skip the gluten-free stuff though, come on, it's Oktoberfest after all, stuff your face with gluten-full beer, bread and pretzels!

Kaiserhof Restaurant - Ocean Beach

If you must skip the fests, head over to Kaiserhof in Ocean Beach, where you're sure to be caught up in all things German. This lively dining joint oozes German, from the Schweinshaxe, a crispy roasted pig knuckle to the German-style decor and biergarten where you'll find plenty of German beers and appetizers such as a Giant Hot German Pretzel or Maultaschen. Heck, you just might feel German for an hour or two.
