Lodi’s longest continuing Oktoberfest has been hosted by the Lodi Tokay Rotary every year since 2006.
You’ll come for the beer and the German food and stay to enjoy the German band and join the Oktoberfest games. We pour American and German beers at Oktoberfest and cook up a storm of German-Dakota dishes such as chicken schnitzel, bratwurst, pickled red cabbage, sauerkraut, cheese buttons and hot German potato salad.
The Gruber Family Band plays a raucous mix of traditional German folk music and pop tunes. The highlight of their performance is a contest to see who can hold two big steins of beer at arm’s length the longest. Herren und Damen are all welcome to show us your stuff. The winners keep the steins. If the crowd gets into it, there might even be a yodeling contest.
Lodi’s Rotary Clubs banded together nine years ago to revive Oktoberfest, which had been celebrated on and off for a number of years. We were celebrating Lodi’s German heritage and the 100th year anniversary of the founding of Lodi’s city government.
Now Oktoberfest is an annual tradition. And remember — you don’t have to be German to have fun at Oktoberfest.
