Oaktoberfest is back!
Oaktoberfest returns in its full Bavarian glory with outdoor dining, drinking, and entertainment for the whole family. Don’t miss the live German music, traditional German food options, hundreds of venders, live music, and the Bay Area’s best craft beers. Come and celebrate in Oakland’s historic Dimond District!
Oaktoberfest is one of the Bay Area’s premiere craft-beer festivals boasting over 200 craft beers to choose from, but it’s not only about the brews. We have four stages jam packed with amazing artists like Andre Thiery, Midtown Social, and Bayonics and Soji and the AfroBeat Band to name a few. There is an entire street dedicated to kids and family attractions with a root beer garden where root beer floats abound. There will also be hundreds of vendors with clothes, crafts and of course plenty of great food options.
THE FOOD: 20 food vendors, including Oakland and Bay Area prominent chefs, showcase traditional German-style menus, including locals Grand Lake Kitchen and La Farine Bakery cooking up pork schnitzel, bratwurst, bread dumplings, braised red cabbage, and of course, fresh baked strudel.
THE BEERS: Mixed packs showcasing German-style beers from the best brewers in the Bay, like Altamont, Drake’s, Laughing Monk, Federation, HenHouse, Line 51, South City Ciderworks, and more.

As a founding member of Afrobeat Connexion, West African Highlife Band, and the Nigerian Brothers, Soji has performed extensively in the U.S. and Canada.
Soji’s latest release brings his own style of original Afrobeat to the Bay Area community. Every track reveals a different side of the guitar: soft and sensitive at times, at others hard and aggressive, all infusing life and soul into an inventive, adventurous, and jazz influenced original sound.
