Family Sunday’s Are Special
Sundays have always been family focused, and Alpine Village Oktoberfest is about bringing families and friends together in celebration. Families can enjoy listening to our band direct from Germany and enjoy some delicious food and drinks. You can take a break from the festivities and bring your kids to visit our face painter that will paint beautiful designs or stop by our Crafts and Game table. Your kids are sure to enjoy these activities in the beautiful Southern California sunshine. Face painting and crafts are located just outside our Klubhaus.
Afterwards, take a stroll through our Village shops where you can find clothes, antiques, collectibles, cosmetics, and books to name a few. You will feel like you are in a small village in Europe.
