Squaw Valley hosts Oktoberfest
If you go ...
When: Saturday, Sept. 24, 2 p.m.
Where: Olympic Village at Squaw Valley
Break out your lederhosen and grab your stein — one of the Basin’s first Oktoberfest events of the season is here! On Saturday, Sept. 24, beginning at 2 p.m., join Squaw Valley in its annual celebration of the German festival.
“This annual event will transform the Village 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,” according to the Squaw Valley website.
Be sure to catch the folk dancers and get your fill of bratwursts, sauerkraut and pretzels as well. Don’t miss the yodeling, either!
The event is both pet-friendly and family-oriented, so bring the whole clan. Shops at the village will be open, so feel free to spend the day perusing everything the site has to offer.
Entry is free, but guests must be at least 21 years of age with a valid ID to purchase beer. All proceeds from beer sales benefit the High Sierra Lacrosse Foundation, which promotes and supports lacrosse in Northern Nevada and surrounding areas.
“Ten dollar admission includes festival glass and first beer, $5 for each additional beer,” states High Sierra’s website.
Squaw Valley Resort’s Olympic Village is located at 1960 Squaw Valley Road in Olympic Valley on Tahoe’s North Shore.
Free parking is available, offering easy access to all ongoing festivities.
