Event Details

28th Annual Campbell Oktoberfest (Oct. 21-22)

Saturday, October 21st 10am-6pm | Sunday, October 22nd 10am-5pm  Downtown Campbell

For 28 years, The Campbell Chamber has celebrated all things German during our annual Oktoberfest in historic Downtown Campbell.

Along the streets of downtown, festival-goers will get in the Bavarian spirit browsing the 100+ arts & crafts booths, sampling a variety of sweet and savory dishes, sipping wine and beer, and listening to some of the best bands in the Bay Area. Voted Metro’s Best South Bay Festival multiple years running, Campbell Oktoberfest is one of the most authentic Bavarian festivals in the Bay Area.

The Biersch Garden is the hub of Oktoberfest, the place where people gather to eat, drink, and be merry. Beneath the expansive covered tents with plenty of seating,  groups enjoy mouthwatering authentic German food and the finest German beers by Gordon Biersch Brewing Company. On the Biersch Garden stage, Zicke Zacke Band will be playing German music. Stein-holding and Best Dressed contests will be held both days of the festival. The Braumeister home brewing contest will be judged on Saturday and the winners announced in the Biersch Garten.

Biersch Garten Happenings

  • Zicke Zacke Band 10am to 6pm Saturday, 10am to 5pm Sunday
  • Keg tapping, Saturday, October 21st at 12pm
