San Diego County's most traditional Oktoberfest - fun for the whole family! Live German Oom-Pah music, awesome German food, German beers on tap, and so much more!
Oktoberfest in El Cajon is a family-friendly festival promoting traditional German culture, including entertainment provided by our popular band Guggenbach-Buam, who join us from Baden-Württemberg, Germany. Enjoy folk dances, games, and contests, vendor booths and craft stands, and let your youngsters go crazy in the Kids’ Zone! On Saturday nights, the clubhouse is also open for dancing (8 PM to midnight), with live German music.
Try authentic German food such as bratwurst, ox-on-the-spit, potato salad, potato pancakes, pretzels, sauerkraut and red cabbage, plus a mouth-watering variety of German pastries. Soft drinks and adult beverages are sold, featuring a fantastic selection of German beers on draft, plus wines and a full bar. Bring your family and invite your friends to join you at the real German Oktoberfest in El Cajon!
