Saturday, September 29th - 11am - 9pm

Sunday, September 30th - 10am - 5pm

Oaktoberfest turns 11! celebrating the history, the flavors, and the people of the Bay Area. The Festival is a FREE public event, please support the effort by purchasing food and beverages from Oaktoberfest vendors and Dimond District businesses.

Oakland’s Dimond District hosts this one-of-a-kind Fall Festival, welcoming thousands with craft beer & food, entertainment, arts, and ecology. The Dimond continues a tradition as an entertainment destination, begun in the early 1900’s when Beer Gardens and German vacation resorts lined the boulevard. Oaktoberfest will bring world-class beer to the tented beer hall, serving steins of traditional German flavors and regional brew pub favorites.

The event is FREE to attend, but the drinks are not! Family-friendly, dog friendly, open to all. Highlighting this years festival will be a traditional Biergarten, the Head-Royce School Family Strasse featuring a Kid’s Area with Root Biergarten, German style homebrew competition featured in the homebrewers’ alley, and vendors from around the Bay. Celebrate Oktoberfest, Oakland style, in the Dimond at Fruitvale and MacArthur. 

Hosted by the Dimond Improvement Association and the Dimond Business & Professional Association, the Oaktoberfest event brings together elements of the district vision for a one day, everyone welcome, family-friendly craft beer festival.

Oaktoberfest is an event designed not only to celebrate the proud history of a shining district in Oakland, but also to raise funds for improvement projects, community development programs, and future events. The success of this festival relies on committed volunteers and the generosity of area residents and engaged businesses. Your support for this non-profit event will create positive change in the community.
