Don your Lederhosen and welcome October to Lake Tahoe, German-style. Tahoe City’s Oktoberfest lets you celebrate autumn and German culture in the company of family and friends. This Lake Tahoe annual event typically takes place on the first Saturday in October, and people gather in Layton Park, outside of the Gatekeeper’s Museum, for fall-ish fun. Bring yourself, bring your family, even bring your dog! Munch on bratwursts and drink German beers. Enjoy the live music provided by local bands. Browse through the vendors of regional craftspeople and merchants. Kids and adults can try their hand in the games and activities like crafts, pumpkin painting, hula-hooping, contests and more. There’s even a costume contest for attendees who dress for the occasion. Admission to this Lake Tahoe annual event is free, and those who plan on drinking brews and wines pay for their drinks and a souvenir beer stein. The Tahoe City Oktoberfest is a fun way to spend time with your family and enjoy the crisp weather and changing leaves.
