2017 Oktoberfest in Carlsbad California

Saturday October 7


Fall is now officially here in Carlsbad, which of course means it’s time for the annual Carlsbad Oktoberfest, North San Diego County’s longest running Oktoberfest.



Carlsbad Oktoberfest 2017The Carlsbad 35th Annual Rotary Oktoberfest is on Saturday, October 7 at beautiful Holiday Park, the usual setting, with the fun beginning at 12 noon and ending at 10 pm. [logo links to the website]



For those who don't know, Carlsbad’s Holiday Park is easy to find. Just head south on Pio Pico from Carlsbad Village Drive (just east of the 5 freeway) and it will be on the left between Pine and Chestnut.



Here’s a site map of the Carlsbad Oktoberfest so you don’t miss anything!



The Carlsbad Oktoberfest 2017 is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Carlsbad, as it always is. Additional sponsors include Cosmetic Social Media, ViaSat and MarkStein Beverage Company, among others. Again in 2017 Oktoberfest funds will go to 2 major beneficiaries, the Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation, and Solutions for Change, a local charity dedicated to solving family homelessness.



Of course you can expect the usual Oktoberfest fun and entertainment, and enough to keep you and friends or family busy from start to finish - German music and other bands, polka dancing, puppet shows, costume and yodeling contests, plus a classic German Oktoberfest dinner. Advance tickets at $15 (for 1 full meal and admission), plus other ticket levels, can be purchased online.

You know what is the best part about Octoberfests? Polka! You betcha. My mother taught me how to polka when I was a little kid, probably in first grade or younger. I can still do it today. I don't know why more people don't polka? It's really a lot of fun and great exercise.

Jeff Dowler - any chance I have to attend a local festival I take.  I love the experience and chance to have fun in a regional festival.

It's that time of year. And you remind me of a post I need to write TOMORROW.  I love outdoor events in the fall, it feels so great outside right now.

Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents  - what a fond memory that is. I remember sorta learning in high school but more because we needed to in gym rather than out of interest.

They are expecting quite a crowd, as always Scott Godzyk  Perhaps there is something similar where you live!

Hope you are having a wonderful time in the mountains Will Hamm
