This Year Marks the 50th Year of Oktoberfest in Los Angeles

Alpine Village is home to the oldest Oktoberfest celebration in Southern California. It is the longest running Oktoberfest in Los Angeles where traditional Bavarian fun is supplied by Oom Pah Pah party bands, your belly is sated by traditional German fare, and your thirst is quenched by delicious German beers brewed by Paulaner. Alpine Village delivers an authentic-yet-modern Oktoberfest to you each and every year…and all within 10 miles of Southern California’s beautiful beaches!

The Oktoberfest celebration began with a royal marriage. Crown Prince Ludwig married Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen on October 12, 1810, and Bavarians did what Bavarians are known to do: throw a party! That original celebration turned out so wonderful that the Bavarians decided to do it again, and again, again. The folk festival expanded into a two-and-a-half week long party that now brings 7 million visitors to Munich every year. The 2010 celebration was the 200th anniversary of the original Oktoberfest. Mini-festivals have been recreated throughout the world to pay homage to the tradition of the event and incorporate the modern fun the people of Munich bring to the event. Whether you’ve been to Munich or not, Alpine Village throws the Best Fest in the West and their Oktoberfest celebration in Los Angeles is not to be missed.
