Placerville Oktoberfest

Saturday, September 21

You know it's legit because they spelled it with a “K.” The Placerville Downtown Association's third annual Oktoberfest should appeal to even the goofiest German stereotype (we're looking at you, Augustus Gloop). For five hours, expect a blur of racing wiener dogs, chicken dances, and contests to see who can chow the most bratwursts and chug the most beer. Free, 3 to 8 p.m. on Main Street in Placerville,
