Please join us for Oktoberfest in El Cajon! The German American Societies of San Diego, Inc., hosts its traditional Oktoberfest on the first two weekends of October!
Come and enjoy authentic German food, such as bratwurst, ox-on-the-spit, potato salad, potato pancakes, sauerkraut, red cabbage and a variety of German pastries. We offer a great selection of German beers and liquors, and soft drinks and water, to enjoy with your friends and family!
Our band, the Guggenbach-Buam, joins us from Baden-Württemberg, Germany. These talented, fine musicians dress in traditional clothing, and play a variety of German music, just as you would hear in the beer gardens in Bavaria. Play a song from the Guggenbach-Buam band using the controller on the right. Enjoy songs from the chicken dance, to polkas and waltzes, dance or sing along to some wonderful Oom-pah tunes!
Enjoy traditional folk dancing performances, compete in our numerous games and contests, check out vendor and craft booths, and treat your kids to their own Kids’ Zone. Bring your family and friends to El Cajon and experience a real German Oktoberfest!
