Is this a family event?

All ages are welcome, and there will be something for everyone! By 6:00pm, the kids events are done for the day, but everyone is welcome to stay.

Are dogs welcome?

Yes, this is Main Street Placerville. We just ask dogs are kept on leashes according to city ordinances and do not pose a threat to the attendees.  Please note this event draws thousands of people to Main Street, so dogs should be good around multitudes of people.

Can we drink our beers on the street?

The consumption of beer and wine purchased from an Oktoberfest vendor may be consumed within the boundaries of the event.  Oktoberfest beer and wine cannot be brought into any main street restaurant, bar or winery, and alcohol cannot leave the venue confines and cannot be brought into the parking garages or parking lots.


We are looking for crafters, artisans and small business who would like to have a 10’x10′ vendor space at Oktoberfest.  Spaces are limited.  Download the Vendor Application  here!
