NINE WEEKENDS OF GENUINE GERMAN MUSIC

Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest steps up its game with an entertainment lineup that brings more Bavarian-style oomph, or in musical terms oom-pah-pah, than ever before. The 49th Annual Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest is pleased to announce it will feature not two, not three, but four different bands direct from Germany in a nine-weekend stretch that spans from September 7 to November 2, 2019. This marks the first-time ever that Southern California’s number-one-rated Oktoberfest will have four different German bands perform live in the same season. Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest’s audience is treated with a unique blend of traditional German polkas, sing-alongs and of course the Chicken Dance, but will also get its fair share of classic rock covers, country hits and today’s dance favorites. All four German bands help create the same vibe and pageantry of the original Bavarian Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany.

“We want to give our guests a little slice of Bavaria right here in Big Bear Lake,” said Monica Marini, director of Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest. “Instead of taking that long expensive flight to Munich, Germany, they can take a short trip up to Big Bear to experience a truly authentic Oktoberfest celebration.”

The first German band that is slated to take the stage at the 49th Annual Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest is Franken Power Express direct from Hammelburg, Germany. The energy of this band is certain to stir up a lively atmosphere September 14-15 and September 21-22. Frankenrebellen Express performs the next two weekends September 28-29 and October 4-5. This band that hails from the Franconia region of Bavaria sings with thick German accents and delivers a fun-style of party music. Die Bohmische Straßenmusikanten, from the eastern province of Bavaria, brings its unique style of Bohemian brass music during Oktoberfest’s peak weekends October 12-13 and October 19-20. Die Bohmische Straßenmusikanten combines street music, fast-paced rhythms, Bavarian folk standards and contemporary pop hits. Goldeisen, a nine-piece band that also resides in Bavaria, returns by popular demand. Goldeisen plays pulsating German-tunes that are certain to get patrons out of their seats and onto the dance floor on October 26-27 and at Oktoberfest’s special encore event Saturday, November 2. The Express Band, Southern California’s premier German band performs the first weekend September 7-8.

Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest delivers a genuine Bavarian-style celebration with alpine scenery and heritage that sincerely reflects the spirit of the original Oktoberfest, even serving the very same beer poured at Munich’s Oktoberfest! There are two full service bars located inside the Convention Center and four different bier gartens (beer gardens) outside, including the Craft Haus, which provides a variety of micro brews and craft beer, ideal for beer connoisseurs. The food is very authentic to German tradition, too. The bratwurst and knockwurst is from a German butcher in Los Angeles, and fresh apple strudel as well as pretzels are delivered weekly from a German bakery in Downey!

Fun competitions and contests at Oktoberfest include log sawing, stein carrying, shoot & yodel, a version of beer pong, and stein holding. Children’s fun and games include kiddy mug holding matches and an enhanced kids’ play area with five different giant inflatables. Dance troupes perform customary dances, and festivalgoers get into the action by flapping their arms and clucking away to the Chicken Dance.

The 49th Annual Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest begins Saturday, September 7 and runs for nine consecutive weekends (Sat. & Sun.) through Saturday, November 2, 2019. The weekend festivities takes place at Big Bear Lake Convention Center, located at 42900 Big Bear Blvd. Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest kicks off with American’s Hero weekend on Saturday, September 7 and Sunday, September 8, offering free admission for all past and present military, fire fighters and law enforcement. Tickets to all 2019 dates go on sale Thursday, August 1, 2019. It is highly recommended to pre-purchase tickets in advance, especially October dates. For more details regarding tickets, Burgermeister / Uber-Bugermeister Party Packs, and general information, log on to BigBearEvents.com, or Facebook, or call 909-585-3000.

rockbadger....so glad to see that you're once again rejoined to modern life.
I tip my hat to you sir.
I've been without power, etc for 3 days due to tornado and 4 days due to ice storm.
8 days???
You and yours truly deserve merit badges for winter survival.
Curious...are you now thinking about maybe getting at least a small generator for what the rest of winter may offer?

Crazy story Badger.... I can only imagine how tough that long of a power outage can be. Glad that things are looking up.

@ButlerPeakFire, Just saw your offer. Thank you. The short version of today was flagging down 2 dif SCE crews on the street. Both denied knowing anything about lack of power to this area. All the crews have been amazing. But today one man on the second one was determined to prove we did have pwr so he insisted on demonstrating that by showing me the meter on the house. But when he looked at it he seemed shocked and said “you have no power.“ very short version is had SCE paid attention to our report seven days ago they would have found that the transformer across the street had blown. Not storm related & could have easily been fixed and prevented all of this... as it was finally this afternoon.

Don't get too excited about the insurance moratorium. As Hugereilly pointed out it does NOT apply to Big Bear or surrounding areas.

Called John Murphy's office a couple weeks back, since my HO insurance was also canceled again. Third time in 6 years. They said that they could get me insurance, emailed the policy over. A week later i called to confirm that i wanted to go ahead with the policy and was told sorry the insurer pulled it and that they would not be able to help me. My home is in Sugarloaf, btw. Still looking

The SCE outage maps are great (although as of Sunday they just had a big blue box running from Running Springs to the 15 freeway, the devastation was so complete). And you can hazard a guess how many times the customer service reps suggested I check sce.com - which I would have been happy to do IF I had the electricity to run the computer or internet. HUGE praise to the SCE staff though for the monumental task they did getting things back at all under such outrageous conditions. I've never seen so many fallen trees. After the plows came through Monday the 138 looked like one giant berm with a Christmas tree lot on top of it. God bless all those who were out working in that mess!
