Presented by Walnut Creek Downtown and the Walnut Creek Chamber of Commerce


For over 200 years, people have been gathering in Munich for Oktoberfest to celebrate and share Bavarian culture with the world.  


Join us Saturday, October 20th, 11a-6p, Civic Park in downtown Walnut Creek at our 4th Annual local Oktoberfest.  Admission is free. With a few years of festival attendance under our belts, we wanted to share some essential Oktoberfest tips to help you navigate the grounds and make the most of your Oktoberfest celebration.
