The Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest celebrates 46 years of German fun this year!  A true German celebration, this year’s Oktoberfest features three bands direct from Germany!




Oktoberfest gets “Unplugged” on Friday, Oct. 14th


We invite you to an intimate evening of fine German dining paired with a variety of beers and spirits.  You will be treated to an inside look into the history and early beginnings of Oktoberfest.  This package includes Friday evening’s festivities featuring a five-course German pairing dinner, live entertainment, a commemorative one-liter stein, an intimate evening of fun, and as a bonus… Saturday and Sunday event admission.


Check out the menu here.


Located in the mountain town of Big Bear Lake, our 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 ambience, celebrating friends, family and good times.   A festival like no other, guests are treated to authentic German entertainment; feast on Brats and Knockwursts direct from the German butcher; and enjoy the very same beers poured at Munich’s Oktoberfest for more than 150 years!












Activities continue through October weekends and will end on October 29th with our big GERMAN SPOOKTACULAR!


The 46th Annual Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest celebrates closing day on Saturday, October 29th with the mountain’s biggest Halloween Party – a German Spooktacular.  The Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest is definitely the place to celebrate Halloween!


The children’s costume contest takes place at approximately 3:00 p.m.  Children dressed in costume come in for FREE!
