Hosted by the Convention Center at Big Bear Lake, home of Southern California’s #1 Oktoberfest. Maifest will feature German music, beer and games; and takes place in Wyatt’s Grill and Saloon.

Maifest is the traditional German celebration of Spring. Dating back to the 18th century, villagers and townspeople would celebrate the end of winter and the arrival of Spring. Maifest at Wyatt’s will feature the same German fun, infused with a little of the Country good times that is Wyatt’s.

The Rippers open the day’s entertainment line-up with country and classic rock. German music by the Kalifornia Krauts takes the stage at 7:00 p.m.

The day’s activities also includes games and contests for all ages. Little visitors will enjoy a bounce house and arts & crafts. Guests who come dressed in a traditional German costume - Dirndls and Lederhosen - will score a complimentary Warsteiner gift. (While supplies last!) Contests will include a German favorite, log sawing. The spring day under the pines, also offers vendors selling a variety of unique and collectible trinkets.

Doors open at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 26. The fun continues through 11:00 p.m. Admission is FREE for all ages
