Vegan Oktoberfest Returns to LA on October 16th
Suit up in your best costume and head to LA for endless pretzels, brats, and German beer!
After a four-year hiatus, Vegan Oktoberfest is returning to LA on Saturday, October 16th! The event will be held at the outdoor space at LA Center Studios downtown from noon-5pm.
Vegan Food Vendors, Live Entertainment, and Craft Beer
Vegan Oktoberfest’s return is highly anticipated and will feature an impressive selection of local and out-of-state vendors, live entertainment, and craft beer. There will be over twenty vendors serving up craft and German beers and more than fifteen food vendors offering everything from tacos and donuts to brats and giant baked pretzels. Vendors include the likes of Cena Vegan, Phyto’s Vegan Eats, Crac Brewery, and Golden Road. Each food vendor will offer at least one German/European food item, so you can be sure to find something for everyone at this vegan food festival!
Entertainment will include live Oompah music from the Munich Boomsteiners, yodeling from Kathrin Jakob, and classic hits from Knyght Ryder, one of LA’s premier cover bands. There will also be costume contests and stein-holding contests for the opportunity to win some killer prizes.
Tickets to Vegan Oktoberfest
Tickets to Vegan Oktoberfest come in three tiers, (VIP, general admission, and non-alcoholic) and are available for purchase here. Both VIP and general admission ticket holders will enjoy entrance to the festival, unlimited beer samples, three full 14oz pours of beer, and a take-home Vegan Oktoberfest beer stein. VIP ticket holders will gain access to the festival one hour early (noon-1pm) as well as an exclusive VIP lounge with curated German beer. VIP tickets are selling for $70, and you can snag a general admission ticket for just $50.
Not a drinker? No worries, the non-alcoholic ticket is only $20 and gets you entrance into the festival and limited pours of non-alcoholic beers.
Tickets will not be sold at the door and are expected to sell out—so get your tickets now! If you’re still undecided, check out @veganoktoberfest on Instagram for some epic inspiration.
