Join the next best thing to Oktoberfest!

Oktoberfest in May? YUP! Well sort of…The Annual Big Bear Lake Maifest is the little sister to Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest, a traditional German springtime celebration that dates back to the 18th century.

While Maifest is scaled back a bit from her big sister Oktoberfest, there’s one thing for certain and that is she packs a big punch! Here’s what you can expect…

• Festive Maypole – Adorned with Colorful Ribbons
• Maibock (Traditional German Springfest Beers)
• Maibowle (Champagne-style punch)
• Sizzling Bratwursts Hot Off the Grill • Homemade Sauerkraut • Fresh Pretzels • Apple Strudel w/ Vanilla Sauce • Live Band • Entertainment • Kids’ Activities • Log-Sawing Contests • Stein Holding Competitions • Corn-Hole Toss
