Placerville’s 9th Annual Oktoberfest is October 19, 2019
Bring the family and enjoy the food, beer, music and atmosphere of a traditional Oktoberfest.
The Wiener Dog Races are a must see!
This race is a fan favorite and the centerpiece of Placerville's celebration of Oktoberfest. Dozens of Dachsunds and their families enter to see who will win the title of fastest wiener dog in town. You have to see the cuteness of this event yourself to appreciate the silliness.

Beer is a big part of the celebration and we will have many great craft beers to enjoy.
