Southern California’s #1 Oktoberfest continues through Nov. 2 with two stages of non-stop entertainment, real German bands, real German food and of course real German beer! Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest steps up its game with an entertainment lineup that brings more Bavarian-style oomph, or in musical terms oom-pah-pah, than ever before. The 49th Annual Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest is pleased to present four different bands direct from Germany in a nine-weekend stretch that spans from Sept. 7 to Nov. 2, 2019. This marks the first-time ever that Southern California’s number-one-rated Oktoberfest has four different German bands perform live in the same season. Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest’s audience is treated with a unique blend of traditional German polkas, sing-alongs and of course the “Chicken Dance,” but will also get its fair share of classic rock covers, country hits and today’s dance favorites. All four German bands help create the same vibe and pageantry of the original Bavarian Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany.
