THE 2022 PROGRAM
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 had 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 was an entire street dedicated to kids and family attractions with a root beer garden where root beer floats abound. Hundreds of vendors with clothes, crafts and of course plenty of great food options were on hand to keep the crowds happy.
THE FOOD: 20+ food vendors, including Oakland and Bay Area prominent chefs, showcased traditional German-style menus, including Evergood Sausages, locals Grand Lake Kitchen cooked up pork schnitzel, bratwurst, bread dumplings, braised red cabbage, and of course, and fresh baked strudel.
