Squaw Valley’s annual Oktoberfest returns
If you go ...
When: Saturday, Sept. 23, noon
Where: Squaw Valley
With the end of September comes one of North Shore’s fall celebrations: Squaw Valley’s Oktoberfest, which takes place on Saturday, Sept. 23, from noon through 6 p.m.
“This annual event will transform the Village at Squaw Valley into a miniature Bavaria complete with authentic German beer and food, Bavarian music, the ever-popular Oktoberfest Games and plenty of family fun,” states the Squaw Valley website.
Throughout the day guests have the opportunity to join in games such as keg rolling, a brat toss and stein-holding competition. Each is free to enter, but participation is granted on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Live entertainment is provided by Joe Smeill’s 20-Piece Bavarian Band, Almenrauch Schuhplattler Bavarian Folk Dancers, The Alpentanz Kapelle Band and Alpentanzer Schuhplattler Bavarian & Austrian Folk Dancers.
Entry is $20 and includes a half-liter stein mug as well as two beer tickets.
Additional beer tickets may be purchased for $5 each, and all beer sale proceeds benefit the High Sierra Lacrosse Foundation.
Bratwursts, Bavarian pretzels and root beer floats will also be for sale at the event.
