Madonna Inn is hosting San Luis Obispo’s second annual Oktoberfest on Friday, Oct. 2 and Saturday, Oct. 3.

The two-day event, hosted in the Madonna Expo Center, hopes to replicate the original Munich beer festival. Festivities include an authentic dinner and unique brews from Firestone Walker Brewing Co.

And for the beer connoisseurs — there will be Spaten.

The event will include several contests — a chicken dance, yodeling and costume contest— all of which provide the chance to win a variety of prizes.

As far as attire goes, dressing in original Lederhosen attire is optional, but Madonna Inn Event Coordinator Ali Bowman said more than half of last year’s attendees dressed up.

According to Bowman, 500-600 people are expected to attend this year.

Tickets are available online at as well as at the door.
