Placerville's 8th Annual Oktoberfest is September 22nd, 2018
Bring the family and enjoy the food, beer, music and ambiance of a traditional Oktoberfest.
The Wiener Dog Races are a must see and this year you will have a much better view from the bleachers.
Thanks to a partnership with El Dorado High School and the generous help of our community members and the Stammtisch El Dorado at our August 6th fundraiser at Powell's Steamers, we were able to secure bleachers for use at our event each year and at the EDHS pool the rest of the year. Talk about a win/win....

Several El Dorado County wineries will be represented at the Weingarten this year.
Boeger, Crystal Basin and Chateau Davell have provided some of the best wine El Dorado County has to offer. We thank them for their support of this event and we look forward to sharing their talent and the fruit of their labor with all of our guests. Glasses and drink tickets will be available for purchase at the event.
Grand Isle Fire Brigade will be back to entertain us with traditional Bavarian Music.
Grand Isle Fire Brigade is returning to Placerville to regale us with the Oompah style music that is essential to an authentic celebration of Oktoberfest. Crowds love to listen and dance to their music. They will be performing from 4:30-7:30 PM.
