Join the celebration at Tahoe City Oktoberfest
This fall, Tahoe City’s annual Oktoberfest returns to town Saturday, Oct. 1. Presented by the Tahoe City Downtown Association, Tahoe City Oktoberfest features local craft beers, live music and great food in a festive fall celebration from noon to 6 p.m.
New this year, Tahoe City Oktoberfest includes craft beers from some of the region’s best microbreweries, including The Brewing Lair, FiftyFifty Brewing Company and Auburn Alehouse, in addition to the ever-popular beers by Lagunitas Brewing Company.
Truckee’s Coburn Station will headline as Oktoberfest’s musical act. Named in honor of S.S. Coburn, who ran a stage station and public house for teamsters east of Donner Lake Camp and played music for his guests in the mid 1800s, Coburn Station brings a soulful blues and rock jam to keep the crowd rocking. The event also features Truckee’s Forget the Roses as the opening act, playing an eclectic mix of roots rock and electric Americana.
Tahoe City Oktoberfest takes place on the shores of Lake Tahoe under an autumn canopy of trees adjacent to the Gatekeeper’s Museum at William B. Layton State Park. The event features live music throughout the day, as well as traditional Bavarian themed games and local artisans vendor booths.
Oktoberfest beer steins are included with the purchase of the first beer, and delicious food will be served by local vendors, including Souper Wagon, Men Wielding Fire and Big Blue Q of Tahoe. Truckee Sourdough pretzels and Tahoe House strudel will also be available for purchase.
