Oktoberfest  2023

Planning for the 2023 Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest is underway!


In the mountains of Southern California an extended family has come together to celebrate Oktoberfest for going on 53 years!  At 6,750 ft., the crisp Fall air creates an atmosphere of “Getmütlichkeit” and well-being. Surrounded by pine trees, the aroma of Brats grilling, and German Polkas, the hassles of everyday life melt away. It’s a special place where friends, family and love all combine to create life-long memories.

The 2023 Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest kicks-off Saturday, Sept. 9 and runs for nine consecutive weekends through Saturday, Nov. 4, every Saturday and Sunday. Plus Fridays in October! We will be updating the site with more details on schedules, bands, ticket pricing, beer and food information, etc.  Stay tuned and definitely be sure to check-out the website prior to your trip!
Tickets go on sale in late July/early August. The entertainment schedule will be available by late Spring. 
We look forward to celebrating with you this year!  Until then, enjoy some Oktoberfest-style German fun with us at the annual Big Bear Lake Maifest, taking place Memorial Day weekend.  Maifest is Oktoberfest’s little sister and offers some of the same great German festivities including german bands, Maibock Bier, contests, grilled brats and sauerkraut, vendors and more.  Maifest info. will be available by late March!
