The Ocean Beach Oktoberfest is a two-day, eclectic, beachside festival with a variety of exciting activities, contests and entertainment.
The two-day event kicks off with the NEW! OktoberStretch, a mini-YOGA+ Live Music festival within the OB Oktoberfest from noon to 6:00 PM on Friday, October 6th. The grassy space at Abbott and Newport will be filled with fun yoga classes, games, and competitions, a chill area for meditation and breathwork, live music and drum circles, and conscientious vendors. At 1:00 PM, we'll kick off the live music in the 21+ beer garden - $5 will get you into the beer garden - where you can enjoy some classic German brews (along with local favorites too).
On Saturday, October 7th, we start bright and early with the 5th annual OB Brät Trot at 9:00 AM. All ages are invited to participate in the Brat Trot; registration is $25 per family (up to 6 participants) for the 2K Family Fun Run at 9 AM & $30 per person for the 5K Beach Run to follow at 10 AM. Registration for the 5K Beach Run includes FREE entrance into the beer garden and 2 complimentary beers for runners 21+. Each Brat Trot run will be followed by a Drill Instructor workout on the beach.
Also on Saturday, there will be a German and local microbrew tasting benefiting the Warrior Foundation Freedom Station. The special tastings, dubbed “Poured with Courage,” are served by active and retired wounded service members.
