Oktoberfest Comes to Walnut Creek

Sep 25, 2015 12:51PM, Published by Jennifer Neys, Categories: Today, Community



Come celebrate the changing of the seasons at the first Walnut Creek Oktoberfest, Saturday, October 17, from 10am - 5pm.

Presented by Walnut Creek Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau and Walnut Creek Downtown, this free, day-long, family-friendly festival recreates the traditional German fall celebration. 

Oktoberfest features include beer, brats, wine, live entertainment, and fun for the entire family. Don your lederhosen or lace up the dirndl dress and head to the Harvest Stage featuring Petty Theft, Revolver, and Mustache Harbor. After building up a thirst - and an appetite - sample a seasonal brew and munch on a soft pretzel while taking in the harvest- themed wares of street vendors and unique artisans lining Locust Street between Cypress Street and Civic Drive. 

Oktoberfest Walnut Creek includes:

·      Bier Garden featuring dozens of favorite brews and international music

·      Kinder Platz with a pumpkin patch, rides and activities for the children

·      Microbrew sampling area featuring local craft beers

·      Live music stages feature Petty Theft, Revolver and Mustache Harbor

·      Harvest themed arts and crafts, local products and services

·      Gourmet food booths

Visitors to the microbrew sampling area will discover local craft beers, such as Calicraft Brewing Company and Pyramid Alehouse, to enjoy with a prime beef slider on a pretzel bun from Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, wiener schnitzel, and sauerbraten from Massimo Ristorante, among other tasty treats.

Youngsters of all ages will enjoy the Kinder Platz children’s area, with giant slide, face painting, pumpkin decorating, and much more.  Choose your “Great Pumpkin” in the Halloween Patch on Bonanza Street and support the Walnut Creek Education Foundation at the same time.  

Come out and enjoy the beautiful autumn weather with family and friends at the first Walnut Creek Oktoberfest. FREE admission. Parking garages are conveniently located at 1350 Locust Street, 1625 Locust Street, and 1390 Broadway. Public transportation includes BART & the FREE Walnut Creek Trolley.
