The 16th annual Oktoberfest returns to the Village at Squaw Valley on Sept. 23.

Oktoberfest supports the local community with proceeds from beer sales benefiting the High Sierra Lacrosse Foundation, a nonprofit organization that supports student athletes developing skills in the sport of lacrosse. Last year’s Oktoberfest raised $20,000.

Entry into the festival is free, festival attendees must be 21 years or older with a valid ID to purchase beer. The event is from noon-6pm. Lederhosen and Dirndls are highly encouraged.
