This weekend is the public’s last chance to drink pilsners from a stein, stomp out a polka, consume bratwursts and generally celebrate Oktoberfest at the Phoenix Club in Anaheim before it moves to a new location in Brea.
The Phoenix Club was founded in 1960 in Anaheim to preserve the German culture, customs and language. It was displaced from its original location in 1990 by the construction of the Honda Center, and the current site was purchased by Henry and Susan Samueli for their ocV!BE project that will transform the Platinum Triangle with a massive development encompassing housing, retail, entertainment, office space, public parks, a performing arts center and an outdoor amphitheater.
Oktoberfest festivities run from 6:00 p.m. to midnight on Friday, 5:00 p.m. to midnight on Saturday and Noon to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday. Friday and Saturday are limited to patrons who are 21 and over.
Tickets are $20 for adults, $5 for ages 3 to 12, and free for those under 3. Tickets must be purchased online.
