Oktoberfest returns to Camp Richardson

As the days get shorter, and the leaves change colors, Historic Camp Richardson Resort & Marina hosts the 8th Annual Oktoberfest celebration. Held Oct. 5 & 6, the two full days of family fun, great food and hand-crafted items herald the arrival of one of the most beautiful times of year in the Sierra.

Free admission and great entertainment make this event perfect for both children and adults. Hay rides through the pines at Camp Rich is a must for any age. Kids – big or small – can search for the perfect pumpkin at the festival’s pumpkin patch. The entire family will enjoy CC the Clown, games for all age groups, from swingball bowling, and the ring toss, and the Bouncy Castle for the little ones.

No Oktoberfest is complete without the German Beer & Wine Garden. Held in the courtyard of the hotel, adults can enjoy a large variety of great beer and wines. Be sure to pick up your special Oktoberfest Souvenir Beer Stein. Along with these traditional beverages, guests can dine on the best of German cuisine, bockwurst, knackwurst, brotwurst, Polish dogs as well as traditional favorites like chicken sandwiches, hot dogs, pastries and pretzels.

Al Gruber Band will perform both days with the sounds of great German music, including all your favorite polkas. Special performances by Miss Marsha’s Dance Studio will be held both both days.

Stroll through the Oktoberfest craft booths, and do your holiday shopping early. The booths display a large selection of handmade items.

Camp Richardson’s Oktoberfest is held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday and Sunday. Don’t forget to check out the Kokanee Salmon Festival, held at the U.S. Forest Service Visitor Center, just down the road from Camp Rich. Free parking is available during the event.
