Herzlich Willkommen!

Can you think of a better way to enjoy the fall season in Big Bear than a weekend at Oktoberfest? This headlining event returns to the Big Bear Lake Convention Center Sept. 10 - Nov. 5, 2022.

Located in the quaint and quiet town of Big Bear Lake, this traditional German festival celebrates family, friendship, and togetherness. Over the years, Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest has become world renown for its old-world ambiance and good times. Guests are treated to German entertainment and music, authentic Brats, Knockwursts, sauerkraut, and pretzels.

The kinds of beer served at the Big Bear Oktoberfest are the very same beers poured at Munich’s original Oktoberfest, including Spaten, Warsteiner, and Ayinger on tap and many others, from Pilsner to Hefeweizen.
