Historic Campbell California is a city that's recognized what it's got, and proudly shows off its assets that were once barely noticed. The downtown shopping district, for instance, has become the center attraction for Oktoberfest celebration, and what better place to enjoy good food, family, friends and even some beer than in a Bay Area city located in the heart of Silicon Valley.


Campbell Oktoberfest is sponsored by the Campbell Chamber of Commerce. It includes approx. 100 vendors, food booths with both German style dishes (bratwursts, sauerkraut, pretzels, etc.), and plain old hot dogs the kids will like. In addition, there are arts & crafts booths, community groups represented and live entertainment. 


Drawing over 40,000 people to the streets of Campbell, Spaten Beer reps will be pouring the drafts, people will take to the streets or the shady tents to dance the polka or a chicken dance, and the kids may delight in a little accordion music, something rarely seen on MTV.


Oktoberfest is a bit old fashioned in its musical themes, its clothing and its traditions. But like Historic Campbell, Oktoberfest has been around a while (nearly 200 years), and some traditions simply are worth keeping. In California, there are probably over 100 Oktoberfest events, festivities and celebrations. You'll find them at the beach, in the mountains, and even in high tech regions such as San Jose / Campbell.
