An Event for the Whole Family on Lake Tahoe's South Shore

What makes Camp Richardson’s Oktoberfest in Lake Tahoe special? It's the huge variety of entertainment and family-friendly activities to choose from that set our celebration apart from the rest. Sip from souvenir beer mugs and sink your teeth into some IPA beer-infused bratwurst created specifically for us. Thrill the kids with a trip to the face painting booth before heading to the bouncy house to burn off some energy.

A well-stocked beer and wine garden, tons of delicious food and desserts, and great live music to dance to. And it's FREE TO ATTEND!

Don't miss a thing! Sign up with your email for updates.
