JOIN THE OKTOBERFEST ORANGE COUNTY CELEBRATION!
What's better than enjoying the cool ocean breeze as you chill in the amazing Southern California town of San Clemente? Well, the answer is having a cold brewski during the Annual ORANGE COUNTY Octoberfest whilst enjoying the cool ocean breeze as you chill in the amazing Southern California town of San Clemente. That's what!
The following breweries are slated to be there: Lagunitas, Left Coast, Ballast Point...and my favorite, Pizza Port!
A portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the
ALL AGES WELCOME - WE FOCUS OF FAMILIES AND GREAT FUN MEMORIES!!!
The OLD TOWN SAN CLEMENTE is the perfect spot to host our annual Oktoberfest. Eric (Owner) has been super awesome to work with and all of the store owners in the square are stoked to host the event. If you haven't been here in a while, you really need to stop by and check it out! Lots of great shops and businesses in here! We think Los Patios will probably get a taco cart going (which is fantastic) in addition to the delicious Oktoberfest Brats.
Special thanks to the City of San Clemente, The San Clemente Chamber of Commerce,
the Orange County Sheriff's Department and the Orange County Fire Authority!

These gents come in hot, and with a full set of brass, really pump out the Oom Pah love for adoring fans!

If you haven't seen these guys then get ready to have your mind blown! If you have seen them, then get ready to have your mind blown again! Either way, lots of mind blowin' going on...
Contests / Activities
Das Brat Toss!
Grab your partner and hone in your skills on chucking some wieners! (...We're talking about Bratwursts ya perv!) Let's see how skilled you can be with a mighty bratwurst in hand! This is another fun game of accuracy and skill that you should definitely try! You just may surprise yourself when you "TOSS DAS BRATWURST!!!"
Now this is something you simply must try! Keg bowling is a quintessential mix between brawn and precision! It's actually harder than it looks... (that's what she said!) We don't think you'll be putting too much spin on this one, so leave your bowling shoes, shirt and wrist support at home this time! (Unless of course you're one of those strange fellas who carries bowling garb in the trunk of their car all the time for that impromptu "just in case" extreme bowling battle!)
Beer Stein Holding Contest
How Long? How Strong? How Wrong... The super fit guys and gals from Foundation Fitness San Clemente
will be hosting this strongman competition! (Be advised that this is not your traditional stein holding competition and there may be a couple surprises mixed in.) Regardless, plan to have a hootenanny of a time and make sure your friends are cheering you on to the finish!
Wiener Dog Walk Off - High Fashion - Throughout the day
Do you want to show off your wiener??? What better place to do it than Oktoberfest! We will be hosting a Wiener Dog Walk Off on the red carpet! (Wiener dog optional.) Bring your pup in hot new fashions for fall. If your "dog" wins you just might get a pretty special prize!
