Oktoberfest

Big Bear Convention Center 42900 Big Bear Blvd., Big Bear Lake, CA

Located in the mountain town of Big Bear Lake, this annual 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 ambiance, 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!
