4 reasons to go to East Village Oktoberfest

September 22, 2021

Oktoberfest is the world’s largest beer celebration and what better way to celebrate it than at your city block. We know It’s been awhile since we’ve all come together for that one day a year where beer flows like water, but the time has finally come!

Here’s 4 reasons you should attend this year’s annual Oktoberfest in East Village.

#1 Stein Holding Contest presented by The BXING Club

Hope you’ve been lifting those weights because our Stein Holding Contest is just around the corner! Whoever is the last one standing wins a one year all location access membership + gloves & wraps + tee + 4 personal training sessions at The Boxing club. ($2525 value)! There will be two crowned champs.

What’s a Stein Holding Contest? It’s pretty simple, you hold a stein out with one arm and the timer starts. The last person with their arm held out wins! There are some rules to abide by and judges will be watching and calling the match!

The BXING Club is voted the best health and fitness club in San Diego! See what all the hype is about with unlimited boxing, kickboxing, Muay Thai, Jiu Jitsu, yoga, indoor cycling, pilates, and fitness classes with expert coaches and state-of-the-art facilities. 

#2 Música

We are excited to announce Oomph Katz will be joining us for another performance along with Harmonica John and DJ Kid Wonder. The best way to immerse yourself in another culture is through music. So grab your dirndl’s and lederhosen’s and get ready to dance!

#3 Bier, Bier, Bier, and Bier

Although the germans did not invent beer, it was at one point considered to be better than water for its nutritional benefits. And as an appreciation for German culture as well as our fine city’s rich bier culture, we are featuring local breweries including Ketch Brewing, Karl Strauss, Societe, Alesmith, Fall Street, and Duck Foot Brewing.
