Oktoberfest moving back to San Carlos
June 25, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Peninsula Oktoberfest, the annual one-day community excuse for music, food and good beer, is heading north this fall to San Carlos.

After a four-year run in Redwood City, Peninsula Oktoberfest organizers want a small, more intimate event and believe the Hiller Aviation Museum in San Carlos provides the perfect mix of large outdoor space, centralized location and — on the off chance of rain as in the celebration’s first year — indoor space.

Organizers are touting the free parking, indoor rest rooms and limited ticket sales to help keep lines short. Oh, and the addition of cool airplanes to check out is a bonus for visitors, too.

The smaller location also frees volunteers from the extra burden that comes with bigger events and popularity, according to an announcement of the move.

More details will be released closer to the actual event at www.hiller.org.
