Wunder Garten's Annual Oktoberfest celebration kicks off Friday, September 22, at 5 PM with the ceremonial taping of the first Spaten Oktoberfest Maerzen Beer. Enjoy live music by "Die Drei Band" and our famous steinholding competition. 

Cafe Berlin is onsite all three days of Oktoberfest with their Bavarian specialities and delicious food, and we'll be serving the best Oktoberfest beers from Bavarian as well as seasonal craft brews from local breweries. 

The festivities continue throughout the weekend! Join us on Saturday, September 23, from 12 to 4 PM for a family-friendly Oktoberfest with games, face painting, balloon twisting, ice cream, and music for the kids. Then we'll kick off the BIG Oktoberfest Party with DJ Lehi and friends at 5 PM. Join us for some dancing and all sorts of Bavarian shenanigans.
