Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest
October 5 - November 2
The true spirit of Bavaria comes to life in Big Bear Lake for nine consecutive weekends and represents Southern California’s most authentic Oktoberfest. The event takes pride in being the closest thing to the original celebration in Munich. Just like the original, Big Bear starts its celebration in September and goes into November. What really makes this Oktoberfest more special than others is Big Bear Lake is situated in an Alpine environment with evergreens trees, mountain vistas, and a town-square village. This environment naturally reflects the scenery and heritage of the Bavarian Alps of Germany. It is also the highest altitude Oktoberfest in the U.S. at 6,750’.
