Bier and Brats: 10th Annual Oktoberfest

Onthesnow.com

As summer passes away, the colors of the Aspen leaves transform and we reign in fall with the 10th Annual Oktoberfest at Squaw Valley on October 1st! The key phrase you need at Oktoberfest (or anytime you’re in Germany):

“Ein Bier, bitte.” Meaning, “One Beer, please.”

Known by locals as one of the best events of the year at Squaw Valley, Oktoberfest is a flurry of traditional Bavarian music, folk dancers, brats and kraut and of course, brews. Proceeds from the Benefit Bier Garten assist the Tahoe Truckee Lacrosse Association. The following line up of live entertainment is complimentary:

  • Joe Smiell & His 20 Piece Bavarian Band
  • Almenrausch Schuhplattler Folk Dancers
  • Alpentazer Schuhplattler Dance Troop

To top off the liveliness of the weekend, be sure to participate in Oktoberfest Games:

  • 3pm – Keg Race
  • 4pm – Brat Toss
  • 5pm – Stein Holding Contest

Commons Beach Live Concerts

It’s a quiet Sunday afternoon in Lake Tahoe and the whole family is up for a shoreline picnic. Grab your beach chairs, a great spread and head on down to Common’s Beach for free live music. Concerts at Commons Beach begin at 4:30pm and usually run until 7pm. It has been a highly popular event this year, and you definitely want to arrive early to snag a great spot.

Next Sunday, July 24th,  features The Eric McFadden Trio. The season runs until September 4th as the “Grand Finale” with The Mother Hips and The Beer Gardeners.
