Campbell’s Oktoberfest set for this weekend

Downtown Campbell will be alive with music, arts, crafts, vendors, and of course beer as Oktoberfest returns to the city this weekend.

The free event, entering its 25th year, is hosted by the Campbell Chamber of Commerce, and features a number of food vendors with traditional German offerings. A wide variety of local beer options, combined with more than 100 artists and a lengthy line-up of entertainment will make for a celebratory atmosphere.

To ensure activities for all ages, a KidsZone will hold inflatables, a fire truck, and more. Pets are not allowed at the event.

In addition to artists, a number of local businesses will have resource booths to answer questions and share information.

While admission is free, food and beers will vary in prices. Campbell’s Oktoberfest runs Saturday, October 19, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, October 20, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

According to organizers, there will be five stages set up along the promenade, running along E Campbell Ave. from 3rd Street to Railway Ave.

Given the large crowds expected, organizers suggest riding transit – VTA’s Downtown Campbell stop is just a block away – or carpooling or riding a bike. Free bike valet will be set up at Civic Center Dr. and 1st St.
