Does anyone know where the best Octoberfest celebration is in Orange County? We are mainly interested in the food.

      There's the tried and true Old World Village, in Huntington Beach. Here's the link: www.oldworld.ws. Old World during Octoberfest becomes a split-personality. The restaurant section evokes memories of a Bavrian beer hall and is more dining oriented, although festive. In comparison, the expansive outdoor bar area becomes awash in beersoaked revelers, mostly in their twenties, who are there for the foamy, keg-drawn beer and to drunkenly hobble their way through the "Chicken Dance."

          On a Saturday. Jagerhaus has one on Oct. 18th. One night only. Just wondering if there where any others around that might be better. We are looking for good food primarily, some fun and something not too rowdy or cheesy.

        The other large Octoberfest in OC is held at the Phoenix Club in Anahaeim. I believe this is what nogidrew is referring to in the post below. The Phoenix Club is literally right down the road from Jagerhaus.

        Good luck and have fun....

          I would have said Phoenix Club too.

          Ladera Ranch has a pretty large outdoor Octoberfest - - here's a link http://www.oktoberfestladeraranch.com/

          No OC, but Lake Arrowhead has an Octoberfest that has already begun this month in the Village.
