Oktoberfest in El Cajon is a family-friendly festival promoting traditional German food, culture, and language. Live entertainment in the beer garden is provided by our popular band joining us from Germany, the Guggenbach-Buam (as Covid travel restrictions permit). Enjoy folk dances, games and contests, vendor and craft booths; let your youngsters go crazy in the Kids’ Zone! On Saturday nights, the clubhouse is also open for dancing (8 PM to midnight), with live German music by the Gordon Kohl Band.
On Friday, September 24, at 6:30 PM, join us for our opening parade and ceremonial "Tapping the Wooden Keg." The next day, Saturday 25 September, be with us for the recognition of past Oktoberfest Königinnen (Queens).
Raffle tickets can be purchased during the festival for $1 each or 6 for $5; prize drawings take place throughout the festival, while the winning ticket for our Grand Prize, a round-trip ticket for two to Germany, will be drawn at 8:00 PM on Sunday, October 3!
Try authentic German food such as bratwurst, ox-on-the-spit, potato salad, potato pancakes, pretzels, sauerkraut and red cabbage, plus a mouth-watering variety of German pastries. Soft drinks and adult beverages are sold, featuring a fantastic selection of German beers on draft, plus wines and a full bar. Sorry, due to the large crowds, we are not pet-friendly! Bring your family and friends to Oktoberfest in El Cajon!
