where: Gatekeeper's Museum in Tahoe City
Featuring local craft beers, live music, and delicious food in a festive fall celebration, Tahoe City’s Annual Oktoberfest returns to town Saturday, September 30, 2017!
Craft beers from some of the region’s best microbreweries will be available, with the purchase of the first beer including an Oktoberfest stein for $10. Participating breweries include Alibi Ale Works, Lagunitas, Auburn Ale House, Sierra Nevada Brewing, Common Ciders; wine from Barefoot Wine & Bubbly; and food available for purchase from Men Wielding Fire, Crepe Hearts, Big Blue BBQ, Truckee Sourdough (pretzels), and The Buck Stops Here.
Truckee’s Coburn Station will be the musical act at the Oktoberfest. Named in honor of S.S. Coburn, who ran a stage station and public house for teamsters east of Donner Lake Camp and played music for his guests in the mid 1800s, Coburn Station brings a soulful blues and rock jam to keep the crowd rocking.
Bavarian themed games including the traditional stein holding contest, a weiner toss and keg rolling will take place, with Oktoberfest guests of all ages invited to join the fun and participate. Raffle tickets will also be available on-site and online here soon.
Offering a stunning backdrop on the shore of Lake Tahoe, the Tahoe City Oktoberfest takes place on the shores of North Lake Tahoe under an autumn canopy of trees adjacent to the Gatekeeper’s Museum at William B. Layton State Park.
