During the Oktoberfest celebration at Old World Village, friends and families celebrate autumn with German-style food, festivities, and drinks. Attendees chomp on bratwursts, guzzle imported beers, and learn to transform jeans into lederhosen while wandering the Old World Village's eight acres. Live German oom-pah-pah bands fill the streets with lively tunes as patrons peruse the German market, restaurant, gift stores, and clothing retailers. On Sundays at 3 p.m., dachshunds race one another in a bid to be the first canine to break the sound barrier. A variety of vendors proffer pretzels and Oktoberfest rotisserie chicken to add to the autumnal merriment.
Old World Village
A little piece of Germany lies on 8 acres of Huntington Beach. Traditional restaurants and grocery stores line the quaint cobblestone streets, and people decked out in German dress meander through their wooden doors. As the sun rises over rows of dangling shop shingles, the air becomes electrified with the sounds of puffing tubas, sizzling bratwurst, and traditional German toasts. This is Old World Village, a mecca of bakeries, bars, delis, and eateries that have been celebrating German heritage for more than 30 years. Sauerbraten, wiener schnitzel, and spaetzle fill the air with savory aromas in Old World Restaurant as visitors to the bar raise their glasses to sip on such imported suds as Dunkel, Hofbräu, and Warsteiner. Meanwhile, the European market lines its colorful shelves with not only German staples but also goodies from Italy, Poland, and other countries. Though the village is the perfect escape for individuals in need of European merriment, mass festivities are its specialty: weddings, family reunions, and other celebrations benefit from its banquet services, and festivals such as Oktoberfest open German traditions to the public better than a congressional lederhosen mandate.
