50th Annual Oktoberfest
Friday, October 13, 6 p.m. and Saturday, October 14, 3 p.m., $5-$20
For 50 years, the Turn Verein has hosted Sacramento’s largest annual Oktoberfest celebrations. So they’ve had time to get it right. The German cultural club brings beer- and brat-loving crowds live music, traditional German folk dancing and singing, authentic food, children’s activities and, of course, wine and the biergarten. 3349 J Street, www.sacramentoturnverein.com.
