48th Annual La Mesa Oktoberfest
Since 1973, the La Mesa Oktoberfest has been attracting Oktoberfest revelers from across San Diego and Southern California for 3 free days of festive live music, including Oompa bands, tons of top-notch german food, and of course, steins filled to the brim with german and craft beer!
After taking 2020 off from in-person celebrations, the Munich-inspired festivities will be returning to the La Mesa Village from Friday, October 1 to Sunday, October 3, as the quaint streets set the scene for the largest german celebration San Diego has to offer!
