Oktoberfest – Herzlich Willkommen!

Sept. 10 – Nov. 5, 2022

Located in a quiet, forested town, Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest continuously ranks among the top Southern California festivals year after year. This authentic German celebration highlights family, friendship, and togetherness.

Click Here for Ticketing Info

German Feast & Beer, Prost!

Come hungry for a German feast fit for a king. Enjoy bratwurst, knockwurst, or kielbasa with home-style sauerkraut or German potato salad (served warm), Bavarian potato dumplings, beer cheese soup, and colossal, mega-sized pretzels. Save room for desert because the fresh German apple strudel with warm vanilla sauce drizzled on top is a dream come true for taste buds!

Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest also has a solid reputation for its wide selection of German beers like Spaten (lager and Oktoberfest), Franziskaner, Warsteiner (pilsner and dunkel) and Konig Ludwig. There are two full-service bars located inside the Convention Center and four different beer gardens outside, which includes The High-Altitude Beer Garden, The Sports Garten, Warsteiner Bier Garten and the Tiki Bar.

Traditional Contests & Live Music

Oktoberfest contests and games are designed to give revelers a chance to compete for prizes and bragging rights, which include stein holding matches, log sawing competitions, the safe slam beer drinking races (non-alcoholic), and the annual Queen Stein Carrying Contest.

Children’s fun-and-games include the pretzel toss, kiddy mug-holding matches and Midway carnival-style games. The only thing that matters about Oktoberfest contests is people have tons of fun!

Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest is proud to bring traditional live German music to the 2022 festival!

Frankenrebellen Express from the Franconia region of Bavaria is slated to perform October 1-2 and October 7-9. They sing with thick German accents and deliver exuberant party music that’s driven by a hearty, rhythmic oompah-pah sound. Oktoberfest’s other seven weekends are booked with Southern California’s top German-style bands including Die Sauerkrauts, Hazelnuss Das Music, Da Stuben Buden, and Ladyhosen featuring international yodeling sensation Kathrin Jakob.

These bands perform on the main stage inside the Big Bear Lake Convention Center. Each band is known to stir up good times with a mix of popular cover songs, original tunes, and of course traditional Bavarian sing-alongs like “Ein-Prosit,” “Hands to Heaven,” and “Das Esellied” that are certain to bring plenty of smiles and cheers. A second stage located outside, in the High-Altitude Beer Garden, features a variety of regional bands that perform rock ‘n’ roll and country music.

BIG BEAR SCARE:

 

Big Bear Lake is the place to eat, drink, and be scary. We’ve been communicating with spooks and spirits to bring you your favorite Halloween activities every weekend in October!

Have a terror-ific time with family and friends at Scare Valley Farms from September 15 – November 2. This high-level haunt takes you back in time to the early 1900s on a haunted hay ride through 30 acres of frightening experiences that is putting Big Bear on the map for haunt seekers everywhere. You can dial down the fear factor on the Haunted Pirate Ship, Flashlight Safari at the Big Bear Alpine Zoo, Haunted Maze at Bear Necessities, or creepy crawly fun at Mountain Room Escapes.
