Redwood City Oktoberfest brings German flavor, beer


Munich's famous beer festival comes to Redwood City this weekend, Sept. 9-11. A decked-out Oktoberfest tent will be set up on Courthouse Square, featuring plenty of family-style bench seating, live music, dancing, cold beer on tap, German nosh and more.

The line up for German-style entertainment include AlpinersUSA, a five-piece band, and Golden Gate Bavarian Club, a dance group.

Dine on German specialties, including pretzels, brats, sauerkraut and German potato salad. And don't forget to wash everything down with a cold brew.

There will also be dance and yodeling contests, a stein-holding challenge and other fun games and activities.

Tickets, which cost $18-20 for adults and $10-12 for children and designated drivers, and includes a commemorative stein plus one drink ticket, can be purchased online. Food not included in the ticket price.

For more information and to buy tickets, go to redwoodcity.org/oktoberfest.

Our family of five went last night, planning to enjoy Friday evening at this Oktoberfest. When we arrived at 6pm, it was sold out and only those with online confirmations were let in. Based on the article stating that tickets "can" be purchased online, we decided to attend later in the day and drove over thinking we could buy tickets at the door. Sad for us. Looked like a great event.
