The 28th Annual Encinitas Chamber of Commerce Oktoberfest will be held on Sunday, September 29, 2024, from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM on Mountain Vista Drive. This free and festive community event has a longstanding tradition of celebrating the German roots of our Encinitas area along with showcasing local artisan products, an authentic German beer garden with stage entertainment to include Bavarian music and dance troupes, German refreshments as well as an international food court, carnival ride attractions, and a recently added local craft beer garden. Our vendor section features exhibits from local artisans as well as Encinitas businesses. Located on Mountain Vista Drive off El Camino Real between Wandering Road and Rambling Road, this free festival spans 1/3 of a mile along Mountain Vista Dr., includes 175 vendors, and attracts attendees from all over San Diego County. This is a premier Oktoberfest in north San Diego County.

Oktoberfest 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 2024 event will be the 28th annual. The Encinitas Heritage Oktoberfest is off of El Camino Real between Wandering Road and Rambling 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!
