Lake Tahoe Fall Event: Oktoberfest 2012

Did you know that Oktoberfest is the largest and most famous event in Germany? It’s a 16-day festival celebrating beer, and has been a staple in Bavarian culture since 1810.

Why not raise a stein in traditional fashion and celebrate at Squaw Valley’s Oktoberfest tomorrow from 2-6pm? Unlike the events held in Munich and Bavaria, you won’t eat brats and kraut under a colorful tent, but in the open air of Lake Tahoe. The air is crisp with fall, the leaves are turning color, your stein is full of brew, and you’ll be entertained by traditional Bavarian Music and Folk Dancers.

Don’t forget the Oktoberfest Games! There’s fun for the whole family.

  • Stein Holding competition
  • Keg-Rolling race
  • Bratwurst Toss
  • Yodeling Contest (new this year!)

All entertainment at the event is free. Your first glass of beer is $10, which also includes a 1/2-liter commemorative festival stein. Additional beers are available for $5 /each.

Proceeds benefit the Tahoe Truckee Lacrosse Foundation.
