It’s Officially Oktoberfest Where We #PartyLikeAGerman @PhoenixClubCA


Ready, Set, OktoberfestThe time has come, the wait is over! It’s finally Oktoberfest time!

Out of all the Oktoberfests in Southern California, the Phoenix Club has the most established, biggest, most family-friendly, AND most authentic one. Awesome, so let’s go there! Last weekend was opening weekend, and the Opening Ceremony was on Sunday.

Oktoberfest will keep running every weekend, Friday through Sunday, throughout October 27, so there are plenty of weekends to go and have fun. If you need a reminder how to dress properly, check it out here. And if you want to stay up-to-date on all the Oktoberfest happenings, specials, and tips, like the Phoenix Club’s Facebook page.

And here are some pictures from Sunday. Happy Oktoberfesting, everyone!
