23rd Annual Oktoberfest

Thank you to everyone who supported our 23rd annual Oktoberfest. It was a record breaking year for us. We’d like to apologize for the lines on Saturday – having been the busiest Saturday we’ve ever seen, it’s given us lots to consider in set up for next year. Hope to see you all next year!

An Event Every Member of the Family will Enjoy on Lake Tahoe's South Shore

What makes Camp Richardson’s Oktoberfest in Lake Tahoe special? The wide variety of entertaining, family-friendly activities to choose from sets our celebration apart from the rest. Sip from a souvenir beer mug and sink your teeth into a freshly-cooked turkey leg or 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 or bungee jump to burn off some energy. And in addition to a well-stocked beer and wine garden, an assortment of delicious German food and desserts, it's your chance to get up and dance to live music by the crowd-pleasing Gruber Family Band. Plus, it's free to attend!
