Oaktoberfest in the Dimond, Oakland’s family-friendly craft beer festival, returns for its 8th year, with Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf tapping the first keg in a traditional Munich-style Oktoberfest kick-off. Highlights include 45 local craft breweries, a homebrew competition, family games and crafts, food booths, cooking demos, and beer-food pairings, all topped off with live music and street dancing. All proceeds benefit neighborhood improvement initiatives such as youth activities, murals, and clean-up. Standard tasting tickets: $20 includes a festival tasting stein plus four 12-ounce craft beer pours. Info: here
