What is Oktoberfest at Fairplex?

Bavarian music. Beer. Authentic German food. Beer. Chicken Dance. Beer. Games and prizes. Beer. Oktoberfest brings a drop of Germany to Los Angeles at Fairplex, home of the L.A. County Fair. In celebration of Bavarian culture and a nod to the world's largest beer festival, Oktoberfest at Fairplex provides all the excitement and German tradition that Los Angeles can offer.

Guests are "transported" to Bavaria as they walk through the gates and into Oktoberfest full of Oom Pa Pa music, games and prizes, The Chicken Dance, authentic German food and gallons upon gallons of beer.

**No outside cups or containers will be allowed.**
