Roll out the barrels, Oktoberfest takes over Clayton this weekend

CLAYTON, CA (Oct. 1, 2022) — Clayton’s Oktoberfest returned to downtown this Saturday after a 2-year COVID hiatus. Guests in attendance found familiar sights such as an authentic Munich biergarten and traditional dance music from The Internationals.

Hosted by the Clayton Business & Community Association (CBCA), the popular event takes over the downtown with the sights and sounds of Bavaria both Saturday and Sunday.

In addition to traditional German music, food and beer, the event features arts and craft vendors selling everything from hot sauces to jewelry. A new addition this year — a Christmas Market booth of items made in Germany.

The full-size carnival opened Friday and provides rides and carnival games through Sunday.

Oktoberfest runs until 8 p.m. Oct. 1 and 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Oct. 2.  For more information, visit
