Tahoe City’s annual Oktoberfest will be held lakeside for the first time at Commons Beach. This free community event will feature beers, bratwursts, traditional Bavarian-themed games and a vendor village on Sept. 29 from noon to 5 p.m.

Live music will include high-energy rock from the The Beer Gardeners and traditional Oktoberfest-inspired tunes by accordionist Robert Ludgate.

Some of the region’s finest craft breweries will be represented, as will wine, cider and other spirits. Commemorative Oktoberfest beer steins will be available for $10 and include the first beer for guests age 21 and older. Additional beer tickets will be sold for $5.

Bavarian-themed food items will be available, and the event will also feature Paint the Pumpkin for kids, and a craft vendor village. |
