Since 1973, the La Mesa Oktoberfest has been attracting Oktoberfest revelers from across San Diego and Southern California for three free days of festive live music, top-notch German food, and of course, steins filled to the brim with German & Craft Beer! In light of current events and safety protocols, the La Mesa Oktoberfest is proud to bring you a re-imagined weekend of festivities with just as much community spirit and prost-ing as you would expect from this beloved La Mesa tradition.
