Midtown Sacramento Oktoberfest

Five people cheers mugs of beer at Oktoberfest

The days of Oktoberfest are fast approaching. This weekend marks the first of many celebrations across the world, but where can you go if you live in the apartments for rent in Sacramento? While California might not be the most Germanic place in the world, Der Biergarten is hoping to change that on the 29th.

Get you lederhosen ready, wet your appetite for schnitzel, and bring an insatiable thirst for beer. Here’s the low-down on the Midtown Sacramento Oktoberfest.

Munich Comes to Sacramento

It’s been three years in the making, but Der Biergarten has finally succeeded in taking over the 24th and K Street block for a party of epic proportions. The company sits on the corner of both streets, extending their Oktoberfest celebration into the streets. Essentially, this will be one big “beer garden” for everyone to enjoy.

Other companies have jumped on the bandwagon as well, staying open for Oktoberfest enthusiasts. While enjoying some delicious German beer selections, you can also enjoy a meal at:

  • Tres Hermanas
  • The Golden Bear
  • Flamingo House
  • Cantina Alley
  • and Skool

Of course, you can always eat something more traditional from Der Biergarten. Regardless of where you choose to dine, there will be plenty of drinks to go around. German music will fill the air throughout the night as well. The City of Trees Brass Band kick off the event at three, handing over the stage to The Alpenmeisters at six.
