The original “Oktoberfest” occurred in Munich, on October 18, 1810 to commemorate the marriage of Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen. By 1960, this event was celebrated around the globe.
Since 1994, the Chamber of Commerce has attracted almost one million people to its annual Oktoberfest in historic downtown Campbell.
The two-day Bavarian-themed event showcases authentic, mouthwatering German foods including Bratwurst and other sausages, sauerkraut, pretzels and German potato salad, a variety of beers and ales, over 100 fine artisans from all over the country, and an impressive line-up of entertainment. Campbell Oktoberfest has been voted Metro Readers Best in the South Bay and has received some great press writes-ups.
