10th Annual

Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest

Chico, CA

 

Celebrating our 10th year, Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest welcomes thousands of lederhosen-clad and dirndl-sporting beer lovers to hoist a stein and Prost like a Pro! Join us for a festive night of craft beer, bountiful food, costumes, dancing, raucous music, and more. Dress your best and brush up on your Chicken Dance skills.

Don’t Forget! The 2019 Oktoberfest Extravaganza spans two weekends. The four sessions (September 27 & 28, October 4 & 5) require separate ticket purchases. Tickets for each day are sold separately, so pick the day(s) that works for you and come party.

 


Beer

Among the 5+ choices is our 5th annual Oktoberfest collaboration beer, a partnership with Germany’s 200-year-old Bitburger Brewery. We brewed Oktoberfest with Bitburger’s custom yeast and secret hop blend called Siegelhopfen, meaning “Sealed Hops”—two house ingredients never shared outside their walls until now. It’s a festbier whose rich amber color and smooth malty flavor bring the Munich tents to you.

 


Food

Included with your admission ticket is a contemporary German feast, available from 5-8 p.m., created by the Sierra Nevada Taproom—full menu coming soon! Other snacks that require additional beer/snack tickets (e.g., soft pretzels, cupcakes, traditional Oktoberfest sugar cookies) have a 10 p.m. cutoff.

 


Music

MarchFourth returns to Chico Oktoberfest!

The theatrical circus troupe of live musicians, singers, dancers, and circus artists will close out the evening. MarchFourth is an internationally-acclaimed, genre-breaking FORCE in the world of entertainment—a sonic explosion delivered by 20 musicians, dancers and artisans who travel the world year-round, taking audience members of all ages, from all walks of life, on a joy-inducing, foot-stomping, booty-shaking, soul-stirring journey that defies categorization.

With exceptional musical quality and a visual kaleidoscope of stilt walkers, hoopers and Vaudeville-style dancers, MarchFourth whips audiences into a celebratory frenzy with an over-the-top spectacle of high-energy compositions, colorful costumes and irresistible charisma!

 

Bayern Maiden

An authentic Oktoberfest band playing like it’s the tents of Munich, performing a mix of classic German pop, rock, folk, disco, and American classic tunes.

Please don't drink and drive

Really, we can’t stress this enough

If you overindulge, leave your car or bike overnight and come back for it the next day. Take the free shuttle or a taxi; you’ll make some new friends and keep everyone safe. We also created these great options for you:

Transportation & Parking

Shuttle

FREE SHUTTLE

From Downtown Chico — the shuttle will run on a continuous loop on Friday and Saturday from 4:30-11:00 p.m. Pick up and drop off are at the transit center across from Madison Bear Garden. This is the ideal option for those seeking post-fest fun.

bike

RIDE YOUR BIKE

Chico Velo is offering complimentary bike valet services and there is plentiful bike parking at the brewery! We don’t advocate drinking and riding your bike, though.

Car

PARKING AT SILVER DOLLAR FAIRGROUNDS

Complimentary parking is available at the fairgrounds, which is a short walk to the brewery, or you can take the shuttle that will run back and forth from 4:30-11:00 p.m. If you need to, you can leave your car overnight at the fairgrounds and pick it up the next day.

No Parking on site at Sierra Nevada!
