Oktoberfest Comes to Walnut Creek

Come celebrate the changing of the seasons at the second annual Walnut Creek Oktoberfest, Saturday, October 15, 11am to 5pm - Rain or Shine! 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 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 Lumberyard, Livewire, and Neon Velvet. After building up a thirst –– and an appetite –– sample a seasonal brew and munch on a soft pretzel while taking in harvest- themed wares from street vendors and unique artisans lining Locust Street between Civic Drive and Mt. Diablo Blvd., and Bonanza Street between N. California and Commercial Lane. 

Every respectable Oktoberfest has a Biergarten, and this one will transport you directly to Bavaria, with dozens of your favorite brews and the lively sounds of international music. Polka anyone? Visitors to the microbrew sampling area will discover local craft beers, such as Lagunitas Brewing Company, and enjoy delectable bites, including Wiener schnitzel and sauerbraten from Massimo Ristorante.

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

So, 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.
