Friends Who Are Going
Event description


Carlsbad Rotary Clubs invite you to join us for the 35th Annual Oktoberfest on October 7th, from noon – 10 pm in beautiful Holiday Park! Be a part of Carlsbad's premier tradition with your closest friends, family and neighbors for a day of food, fun, beer, costume competitions, and music.


There will be entertainment, dancing, and fun Kinder Korner activities for kids of all ages: including a photo booth, jumpy houses, a pumpkin patch where children can decorate pumpkins, performances by Ranger Jack (one man band and puppeteer) and much, much more.


3rd Annual Costume Contests:

Come dressed in your finest Oktoberfest ensemble to compete for prizes. Categories include:

  • Best Dressed German Junge & Mädchen (*boy and girl)
  • Fetching Fraülein
  • Masculine Mann

Yodeling Contests

Get your yodel on! New this year is our yodeling contest for kids and adults! Start practicing now because there are prizes to be had!


DJ Efraim Nunez will kick off the day’s entertainment by spinning your favorite tunes followed by live bands starting with local favorites Faith Page, Bluebirds, and ending with The Last Call. Fill your day with Chicken dance performances, good eats, and ice cold beers!


If the traditional German meal of brat and sausage with potato salad and sauerkraut doesn’t appeal to you, then go lighter with grilled chicken and delicious sides. Tempt your sweet tooth with apple strudel, kettle corn, and cotton candy!


More than $1 million has been raised to support our two clubs’ scholarships programs and local charitable organizations providing needed services in the community. You don’t want to miss this!


Meal and Admission Tickets: $15 in advance and $20 at the door. This ticket price includes one full meal and admission for ages 10 and over.

Admission Ticket Only: $5 for ages 10 and up. Children under 10 years old are free.
