Featuring local craft beers, live music, and delicious food in a festive fall celebration, Tahoe City’s Annual Oktoberfest returns to town Saturday, September 30, 2017!
Taste craft beers from some of the region’s best microbreweries, including The Brewing Lair, FiftyFifty Brewing Company, and Auburn Alehouse, in addition to the always 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 North 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 is available for purchase by our local vendors, including Souper Wagon, Men Wielding Fire, Big Blue Q of Tahoe, Truckee Sourdough (pretzels!) and Tahoe House (strudel!)
