It’s finally Oktoberfest season, and San Gabriel is getting in on the fun this year with the city’s inaugural Dumpling & Beer Fest!

The local twist on the traditional Oktoberfest will feature local craft beer tastings, dumpling vendors and other food booths, free live entertainment provided by Moonsville Collective, an Americana String Band, and more. 

Attendees can purchase a beer tasting wristband for $20 in advance online. Tickets will also be available on the day of the event for $25 until they sell out. Admission to the event is free. 

For this event, Mission Drive will be closed between Santa Anita Street and Carmelita Drive from 1:00-11:00 p.m.
