This fall festival tradition comes from Munich, Germany, where they have been celebrating the fall harvest for hundreds of years with a two week party full of great music, delicious food, and fine beer, and everything German! The Village at Squaw Valley has taken that venerable Deutchland tradition, distilled it down to a single day, and put a local twist on it you’ll love. Best of all, a percentage of proceeds from the Benefit Beer Garden go straight to the Tahoe-Truckee Lacrosse Association, benefiting young local athletic students!
There’s something special in this Tahoe Oktoberfest to delight all your senses, and for every age!
Sounds: From German Polka music to traditional yodeling, Oktoberfest music makes you feel like you’re standing on a cobbled street in Bavaria, toes tapping and ready to dance!
Sights: Traditional dancers, competitions (Just how far can you toss a bratwurst?), and fun people watching…the Village at Squaw Valley will be filled with fun events to watch! Join the fun and dress in costume if you like!
Tastes and Scents: Authentic German beer and sausages, Bavarian pastries, yum! Floral hops, savory sizzling sausage aromas, and the scent of vanilla and sugar on the air. And don’t forget the root beer floats for the kids…this is an all ages event!
Action: Whether it’s competing in the stein-holding competition, dancing the polka, or trying your hand at a real Alpine yodel…there’s so much to do during Oktoberfest!
Oktoberfest is held at Squaw Valley, Saturday, September 26, from 2-6pm.
