Sip, sing and “prost!” your way through the final weekend of the 2nd Annual Long Beach Oktoberfest. You don’t want to miss out on this beloved event that gives you a taste of the German “Volksfest” with authentic brews like Paulaner Golden Oktoberfest Bier while partaking in boozy traditions. The celebrations will be happening this Friday, Saturday, and concluding on Sunday, October 9th. The 2nd annual Oktoberfest has been a blast so far, and this final weekend is sure to be wunderbar!
Once you step inside the blue-and-white tents outside the 1920s Scottish Rite Event Center in Long Beach, you’ll immediately be transported to Munich’s charming beer halls. You’ll join fellow lederhosen-clad revelers for a raucous celebration of brews buzzing with Bavarian spirit and endless pours.
This party will also be graced with performances from authentic German polka bands! As you go from tap to tap, the world-famous host Festmeister Hans und Die Sauerkrauts will be serving up his signature mix of antics and tricks. This final weekend will be graced with Heino, aka “Old Weird Eyes,” a legend when it comes to traditional folk music. As one of the most successful German musicians of all time, Heino is sure to make this upcoming weekend one for the books!
Apart from the steins overflowing with Hacker-Pschorr Festbier, Wood-cask Celebration Ale, Weihenstephaner, and more, this Oktoberfest will also feature comforting German fare. Feast on huge, golden pretzels and bratwurst (yes, that includes tasty vegan options too).
While your memories may be a little hazy from all the ale-guzzling, there’ll be official Long Beach Oktoberfest T-shirts and steins to take home in honor of all the good times had. The 2nd Annual Long Beach Oktoberfest ends this weekend on Sunday, October 9th so get your tickets while they’re still available!
