CALIFORNIA — Just because the coronavirus pandemic fueled cancellations of many Oktoberfests throughout California this year, dirndls and lederhosen need not languish in the back of closets.




Statewide, scads of organizers scrambled in recent months to revamp and present Bavarian-inspired events and smaller-scale German feasts to replace those scrapped in 2020 due to COVID-19 mandates.

Peruse Patch's annual Oktoberfest guide, which looks very different this year, to be sure, and see what's going on near you.


And Prost, from Patch!
