Fall in the Inland Empire—Lake Arrowhead Oktoberfest 2015

Unless you’re part of a study abroad program or a wealthy jet-setter, chances are you don’t have the time or money to fly to Munich for Oktoberfest. But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy beer, bratwurst and all the associated festivities. Drive up the hill to Lake Arrowhead to celebrate right here in the United States—where you can party without the hassle and cost of a trip to Europe.

Lake Arrowhead Village is perhaps the best, most authentic Oktoberfest in Southern California. This year’s event kicks off on in a genuine Alpine Village, complete with authentic food and free entertainment, on Saturday’s and Sunday’s, September 19th – October 27, 2015.

Often referred to as the jewel of Southern California, Lake Arrowhead is the closest thing in the Inland Empire to Europe in beauty and old world charm. This has made it the perfect place to celebrate the time-honored tradition of Oktoberfest! Don’t miss out on this year’s free events:

Free games for young and oldBavarian beer pretzel with vintage style
