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.


Bier and Brats: 10th Annual Oktoberfest


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
