Hosting Oktoberfest in Los Angeles Since 1968
Alpine Village is the home of the oldest Oktoberfest celebration in Southern California. Last year was our 50th Anniversary celebration, and one of our best to date. Many of you asked “what it was like 50 years ago?”. Well, this year, we are going to show you and relive those golden days.
We are hosting our “Throwback Oktoberfest” for our 51st anniversary event. This year, we are moving our event back into our restaurant like when it first started. No tent this year, but rather, our “bier hall” style celebration.
Our restaurant will be set up much like the German Bier Halls during Oktoberfest including:
- Festival Style Seating – our traditional benches where you get to know your neighbors
- Band Direct From Germany – the Haderlumpen band is back!
- German Food – from our award winning sausages to our roasted chicken
- German Imported Beer – HofBrau is our featured beer, but there are many to choose from
- Full Bar – in addition to our imported beer, this year we will have a full bar
We deliver an authentic European traditional Oktoberfest to you…and all within 10 miles of Southern California’s beautiful beaches. Join us for Oktoberfest 2019!
- Fridays: 6:00 PM to midnight
- Saturdays: 6:00 PM to midnight
- Sundays: 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM

GENERAL ADMISSION tickets are pre-sold online and also available at the door. When you buy your tickets online, you can bypass the door sales line and go directly to our Online Sales entry. Be sure to arrive early as we are sure this event will pack out. Arriving later, you may have to wait a little bit but not nearly as long as those who are in the same day door sales line.
We know that standing in line is no fun so we are opening our Klubhaus for you as well. You can wait there until you’re called for entry the “restaurant bier hall“. We will have some of our bratwurst sandwiches, pretzels, and cold beer available while you wait. Advanced ticket sales close 11:59pm the day prior to the event, but a limited number of tickets will be available at the door!
Sundays are Family Days
Sundays are Family Days at Alpine Village Oktoberfest. We believe children should also be encouraged to celebrate Oktoberfest traditions, just in a more reserved environment. Sundays are the perfect day for families to celebrate this traditional festival.

Oktoberfest Beer and Wine
A feast would not be complete without an ice cold stein of German beer. We are featuring HofBrau beers, one of the most popular beers in Germany for Oktoberfest.
This year, we are featuring HofBrau beer imported direct from Munich, home of the Oktoberfest. HofBrau is one of the most popular beers at Oktoberfest and we are sure you will enjoy it.
We will be serving:
– Oktoberfestbier — golden lager
– Hefe Wiezen — wheat ale
– Dunkel — dark lager
We know not everyone likes a good German beer. To make sure that we have something for everyone, we will have a nice selection of craft beers on rotating handles. These will include local and national brands so stop in and surprise yourself!
We realize that not everyone is a beer fan. In addition to our imported and craft beers, we will have our full bar open. Looking for a Feigling or Jager Shot? We have it!

Origins of Oktoberfest
The Oktoberfest celebration began with a royal marriage. Crown Prince Ludwig married Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen on October 12, 1810 and Bavarians did what Bavarians are wont to do: they threw a party! That original celebration turned out so wunderbar that the Bavarians decided to do it again, and again, again. The folk festival expanded into two-and-a-half week long party that brings 7 million visitors to Munich every year. The 2010 celebration was the 200th anniversary of the original Oktoberfest and mini-festivals have been recreated throughout the world and we do our best to pay homage to the tradition of the event, incorporate the modern fun the people of Munich bring to the event, and mix in a small amount of California flair. Whether you’ve been to Munich or not, Alpine Village throws the Best Fest in the West and our Oktoberfest celebration in Los Angeles is not to be missed.
The stars of the show is the 10-piece Oom Pah band we fly direct from Germany – they are the heart and soul of the fun!
