This is the perfect event for OHH members. Come out and join me for an evening of celebrating, food and great beer.
Designed in the true spirit of the famed Munich Oktoberfest, the San Francisco version is the largest event on the West Coast, and features an outstanding 27 piece Polka Band, traditional German dance groups, Alpine horns and special exhibits. Produced by the German –American society of Northern California, attendees are welcomed into a festive environment, complete with huge banners, German foods, non-stop entertainment, exhibits and of course – BEER!
The producers of Oktoberfest by the Bay are welcoming us back again this year with a great dinner & entertainment special.
