History

Encinitas’ German roots go back to one of our five communities, the northeastern colony of Olivenhain, founded in 1884 by German farmers. The Encinitas Oktoberfest coincides with the Deutschland start of Oktoberfest in mid September. We first celebrated Oktoberfest in 1994 and the 2014 event will be the 19th annual. The Encinitas Heritage Oktoberfest starts at the corner of El Camino Real and flows down Mountain Vista Drive to Wandering Road and gives everyone a chance to eat, drink, shop and be German for the day. The event features about 200 craft booths, food (authentic German sausage and side dishes), cold beverages, Bavarian band, dancers, and more.
