The Vancouver Alpen Club has been Vancouver’s main location for the Oktoberfest for over 30 years, serving traditional Bavarian cuisine. Of course there’s also beer and the Alpen Club has partnered with two German breweries, Krombacher as well as Erdinger, the world’s largest wheat beer brewery, founded in 1886.


Since the early 19th Century in Munich, Germany, Oktoberfest has been held during late September to early October. The Vancouver Alpen Club is Vancouver’s most popular venue for celebrating the event, with guests returning each year (often in their own Dirndls and Lederhosen) to enjoy the authentic German atmosphere, beer, pretzels, German food, music and Oktoberfest traditions.

Oktoberfest at the Vancouver Alpen Club

Where: Vancouver Alpen Club (4875 Victoria Dr, Vancouver)
When: September 23 & 24; September 30 & October 1; October 14 & 15

Each day of the Oktoberfest festivities at the Vancouver Alpen Club usually sees over 400 visitors, with over 7000 liters of beer being consumed in the course of the three weekends!
