My family finally made it to the La Mesa Oktoberfest this year, we were able to see a friend perform in his band along with other talented musicians. We were amazed by all of the entertainment offered including rides, food, live music, and of course beer. This event has been going on since 1973 and attracts people from all over San Diego County. Play Glücklich games, take the kids over to the German Kinder Karneval, grab food from the many food booths and food trucks, enjoy a drink from the Hofbrauhaus Biergarten, and much more. One of my favorite things was watching the skilled street chalk artists. They offer a VIP pass with a separate entrance, additional restrooms, front of the line privileges, and many other benefits. Visit for dates and directions.
