The 41st Annual Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest kicks-off this Saturday! It looks like we’re going to have a some great Fall weather for opening weekend. Daytime highs in the upper 60’s and lots of sunshine. Stay tuned for photos from this weekend’s festivities.
We are celebrating American Heroes this weekend, as well as opening of the 2011 season. All military, police, and fire personal, both past and present, get in for FREE. This also includes their immediate families. Join us as we say “Thanks” for a job well done.
The two new bier gardens are set up and looking great providing 3,100 sq. ft. of expanded seating and a new atmosphere in the Sports Garden. Catch college games and baseball on Saturdays and the best of the NFL games on Sunday. The Warsteiner Bier Garden has also been expanded, with 200 sq ft. of additional seating.
This is definitely the year of the Chicken! We have a new chicken mascot, who has been on the road all summer making appearances at several minor league baseball games throughout the Inland Empire. But, not only do we have a new chicken, we also welcome the return of the infamous chicken hat, which is now exclusive to the Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest! So come on out and see the chicken, drink a beer, eat a brats, and dance a polka.
