La Mesa Oktoberfest
La Mesa Oktoberfest is the LARGEST Oktoberfest celebration in San Diego! Celebrating its 46th year in 2019, the festival covers an area of nearly six city blocks of La Mesa Village. Attracting more than 100,000 attendees annually, the three-day event features local and regional bands, traditional German dishes and plenty of German biers. Highlights include traditional Biergarten sing-a-longs and interactive game; the original glücklich games, such as beer stein races, beer barrel rolls, keg bowling, and keg hauling; a Kinder Garten with contests and hands-on activities; and an antique market and a vendor market.
Friday, October 4th through Sunday, October 6th explore endless rows of vendors featuring incredible craftwork and knick-knacks, to scrumptious sausages, food truck favorites, and live entertainment. La Mesa Oktoberfest promises to be back and better than ever!
