One of the most exciting fall activities in the Lake Tahoe region is the celebration of Oktoberfest. The Village at Squaw Valley is transformed into a small Bavaria for the annual Squaw Valley Oktoberfest complete with a vast selection of authentic German eats and drinks, Bavarian music, and of course, the popular Oktoberfest games. Don’t let the Oktoberfest name fool you; this event is perfect for all ages with plenty of fun and games to be enjoyed. Of course, the adults are encouraged to get their steins ready for delicious German beer to keep their thirst quenched. Read on to learn all about the Oktoberfest Tahoe celebration!
Fun and Games
The Oktoberfest Tahoe games are one of the biggest draws to this exciting event. The fun and games are a perfect activity for children and adults to enjoy together. First up is the ever-famous Keg Rolling, a challenging activity where contestants roll an empty keg through a course, aiming for the fastest completion time. This game is obviously for adults with beer equipment used to play. Next up is the brat toss, a competitive game where contestants toss bratwursts onto a keg with increasing difficulty. And the final Oktoberfest game is the Stein Holding competition. This classic German game has contestants hold two full 1-liter steins of beer at shoulder height—last person standing wins. Let your family cheer you on and prove your German heritage with all the fun and games.
Support Local Organizations
Squaw Valley Oktoberfest not only provides a variety of entertainment, but it also donates all proceeds to the High Sierra Lacrosse Foundation. Entry is free, with all games and activities free to participate in as well. Due to beer on site, only festivalgoers who are 21 years or older and with a valid ID will be able to purchase beer. But don’t worry; the kids can enjoy delicious treats such as brats, Bavarian pretzels, and root beer floats. Make sure to get to the Squaw Valley Oktoberfest early as the games can fill up fast.
