The German American Societies of San Diego, Inc., hosts its traditional Oktoberfest :
1) October 2-4 (Friday-Saturday-Sunday)
2) October 9-11 (Friday-Saturday-Sunday)
Come and enjoy authentic German food, such as bratwurst, ox-on-the-spit, potato salad, potato pancakes, sauerkraut, red cabbage, pretzels, and a variety of German pastries. We offer a great selection of German beers and liquors, and soft drinks and water, to enjoy with your friends and family!
Our band, the Guggenbach-Buam, joins us from Baden-Württemberg, Germany. These talented, entertaining musicians dress in traditional clothing, and play a variety of German music, just as you would hear in the beer gardens in Bavaria. Play a song from the Guggenbach-Buam band using the controller on the right. Enjoy songs such as the chicken dance, polkas and waltzes, and all the famous beer-drinking tunes - new and old! Dance or sing along to some wonderful Oom-pah music!
Watch traditional folk dancing performances, compete in our numerous games and contests, check out vendor and craft booths, and treat your kids to their own Kids’ Zone. Bring your family and friends to El Cajon and experience a real German Oktoberfest!
