in Ocean Beach

The Ocean Beach Oktoberfest – the uniquely Southern California salute to the celebration of German culture and fun – is returning this year. It’s scheduled for October 8th and 9th, 2021.

The return was announced at the August 25th OB Town Council zoom meeting, by Denny Knox, head of OB Mainstreet Association.

From OBMA:

The OB Oktoberfest has been a tradition in Ocean Beach for more than 21 years. As usual, we expect large crowds at our fun, colorful beachfront event. We have two exciting areas for vendors. Food Vendors will be in Veteran’s Plaza on the grassy area at the foot of Newport Avenue and Abbott St. Merchandise Vendors will have the choice of a 10’X10’ space in Veteran’s Plaza at a cost of $295 or Saratoga Park at the foot of Saratoga Ave at a cost of $155. The Saratoga Park area includes a stage with family-friendly musical acts and several contests. There will be tables and chairs for the public to enjoy while shopping and enjoying the food vendors.

For further information, please contact Denny at the OBMA office at 619-224-4906. For vendor information, go here.

Just a note: the Adams Ave street fair was cancelled.

Also postponed


Probably a liability to D & O’s to hold events considering the coronavirus pandemic???
