Here's some more information about the inaugural Oktoberfest presented by Active 20-30 of Santa Rosa #50:

This year the Active 20-30 Club is putting on an Oktoberfest September 17th at the Santa Rosa Veterans building. It is a traditional style Oktoberfest with a Sonoma County style. This will be a great time, you'll get a stein of beer and traditionally Oktoberfest food locally sourced while our polka band plays on the stage. Best of all, you'll have fun at Sonoma County's largest Oktoberfest while raising money to benefit underserved youth in Sonoma County.


Brewery Philosophy

Each of the breweries support Battle of the Brews and have actively seeked us out to showcase their lines of German beers, including their seasonals, at this event. Pretty much all of these breweries were founded with brewers trained in Germany or sourcing their hops from Germany and their biggest selling beers are German Style.

Confirmed Brewery List

· Anchor

· Carnaros

· Gordon Bierch

· Sonoma Springs

· Stone Brewing

· Sudwerk



Food Philosophy

We’re delivering the true Oktoberfest experience where you get a big old plate of Bratwurst, Pretzels, Strudel, Soups and Sides. These German Style dishes are prepared largely from local suppliers and ingredients. Patrons will have 3 options to choose from:

Food Menu

· Caggiano Bratwurst in a hoagie roll (as showcased at Battle of the Brews), Sauerkraut, and Potato Salad.

· Cheddar Soup in a Bread Bowl and a Pretzel (vegetarian)

· Strudel and Ice Cream



Big Lou Accordion Princess and the Polka Casserole Band

Big Lou's Casserole is always the life of the party. Polkas, waltzes, cha-chas, tangos, western swing, you name 'em, we play 'em (unless you name disco, in which case, shame on you.) The band has been together for more than ten years. They play family fairs, polka festivals, nightclubs, birthday parties, bar mitzvahs, music festivals, beer festivals and Oktoberfests. Based in San Francisco, they have played as far afield as Milwaukee, Pittsburg and New York City. The band always entertains.
