Herzlich Willkommen!

Located in the mountain town of Big Bear Lake, this quaint celebration has always been based on the lore of the world’s original Oktoberfest. Over the years, the Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest has become world renown for its own traditions and old-world ambiance and good times. A festival like no other, guests are treated to German entertainment; authentic Brats and Knockwursts, and the very same beers poured at Munich’s Oktoberfest for more than 150 years!

The 50th Annual Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest runs for nine consecutive weekends at the Big Bear Lake Convention Center.
