Tahoe Culture Oktoberfest at SquawSquaw Valley is hosting an Oktoberfest celebration complete with a Bratwurst Toss, authentic German beer and plenty of entertainment.

The annual Squaw Valley Oktoberfest will take place September 23, 2017 from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The Village at Squaw Valley embraces the beginning of the fall season with the return of the 16th annual Oktoberfest on September 23, where the Village magically transforms into a miniature Bavaria complete with authentic German beer and food, Bavarian music and performances, and popular Oktoberfest themed games. Similar to years past, Squaw Valley’s Oktoberfest supports the local community with proceeds from beer sales benefitting the High Sierra Lacrosse Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports student athletes developing skills in the sport of lacrosse. Last year’s Oktoberfest raised $20,000. Entry into the festival is free, festival attendees must be 21 years or older with a valid ID to purchase beer. Oktoberfest 2017 takes place Saturday, September 23 from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Lederhosen and Dirndls are highly encouraged.

“The annual Oktoberfest is one of the most popular festivals in the Village—the great food and music combined with fun and competitive games makes it accessible for all ages,” said Caroline Ross, executive director for the Squaw Village Neighbourhood Company. “It’s wonderful to see how excited people are to be dressed in Lederhosen and Dirndls, enjoying great food and fun activities. We’re thrilled to be supporting our local community and the High Sierra Lacrosse Foundation for the 10th year in a row.”

Oktoberfest 2017 will feature Bitburger Premium Pilsner, Kostritzer Black Lager, Benediktener Oktoberfest Lager, Benedicktener Weissbeir and more traditional craft Oktoberfest brands. A .5-liter Squaw Valley Stein will be available for purchase for $20—with two beers included in the price. Additional beers are available for $5 each. Bratwurst sausages, schnitzels, pretzels, and non-alcoholic Rootbeer Floats will be available from local restaurants and vendors.

Guests of all ages are invited to participate in the OktoberGames featuring a Keg Rolling Race, a Brat Toss and a Stein Holding Competition.
