Vegan Oktoberfest Returns to Los Angeles This Fall
Vegan brats, ‘kraut, and brews are coming back to LA.
After a few years-long hiatus, Vegan Oktoberfest returns to Los Angeles this year in a big way! Foodies and beer fans, prepare to unite for the one-day only festivities right in the heart of Los Angeles. This year’s Vegan Oktoberfest will be held at Los Angeles Center Studios (450 S Bixel Street, Los Angeles, CA 90017) from noon-5pm on Saturday, October 16th.
Vegan Pretzels the Size of Your Head
The event is 21+ only and tickets will be available in three packages: General Admission, VIP, and Non-Alcoholic. The first package is $50 and includes unlimited beer samples, three full pours of beer, and a take-home Vegan Oktoberfest Beer Stein. For $70, VIPs are allotted the same benefits as GA with an extra hour of early admission, a VIP lounge, and a selection of exclusive beers. Those looking to check out the festival alcohol-free and catch all of the amazing German foodie finds and vegan pretzels the size of your head can gain access to the festival for just $20 per person, no alcohol or swag included.
Vegan Food Festivals
As one of the most highly anticipated vegan food festivals makes a return to Los Angeles this fall, we’re sure many will soon follow suit. Vegan Oktoberfest was a hit during its last run in 2016, with guests coming out in droves from all over Southern California to enjoy the expansive beer and cider garden, stein holding and costume contests, piled-high brats and Berliners (German doughnuts) galore, and amazing live music. This year’s lineup is still in the works, but we expect the vendor list to be revealed in the coming weeks. Past vendors and breweries have included Ritual Brewing Co., Dogtown Dogs, Ridiculous Baking Company, Cobblermania, and Angel City Brewery, just to name a few.
Tickets will be available soon. As it stands, the festival may require proof of vaccination, masks, and/or social distancing. For more information, and to plan your visit, check out VeganOktoberfest.com or follow along and check out vendors on Instagram (@VeganOktoberfest).
