This large tent with tables, live music, beer, and Bavarian pretzels will make you feel like you're in Munich! A great way to relax and enjoy authentic German food while you watch or participate in the chicken dance,stein holding and costume contests and cheer on our home brewers in the Braumeister competition!
Dress up and participate in our second-annual costume contest! With so many festival-goers getting into the spirit by wearing their lederhosen and dirndls, we thought, why not have an official contest! This year will be even bigger and better!
So don your best Bavarian garb and join in on the fun in the Biersch Garten on both Saturday and Sunday at 3pm.
A Bavarian feat of strength, the stein-holding contest is a longstanding tradition to see who can hold a full stein of beer at arm's length for as long as possible. The annual contest will be held in the Biersch Garden at 2pm on both days of the festival.
There will be a $30 entrance fee to participate in this year's contest.
Calling all home brewers! Create your best batch of Oktoberfest-style marzen beer and enter our second Campbell Oktoberfest Braumeister competition.
With four stages placed throughout the festival, there will be live music, street performances, and community entertainment. The Zicke Zacke Band will play all weekend in the Biersch Garten.
No matter your age, there's fun for everyone in the Oktoberfest KidsZone. There will be a climbing wall, slide, crafts, face painting and lots of other great activities.
Kick off the weekend's festivities with a Fun Run/Walk with the whole family. There's a Kid's Dash, 5K and 10k in Campbell Park. Hosted by Campbell Recreation & Community Services.
Visit Historic Downtown retailers and boutiques to enhance your Oktoberfest experience.
Many stores will be offering special Oktoberfest deals.
