2010 marks the 38th Annual Tempe Oktoberfest Anniversary. Tempe takes on a Bavarian look during the first weekend each October as a projected annual crowd of about 200,000 will enjoy the festivities from Friday to Sunday evening. The annual event brings a bit of Germany to Tempe Beach Park on the banks of Tempe Town Lake.

Admission to Tempe's Oktoberfest is free. But bring cash to enjoy the beer gardens, wine-tastings and food that extends from German tastes to American flavors as well. Get ready to rock. There are two stages featuring free entertainment that includes local bands with a variety of sounds.

It takes over 2,000 volunteers to Tempe Oktoberfest happen. With over 200,000 attendees, you can just imagine the fun everyone of all ages will enjoy. The Tempe Sister City Corporation, a non-profit group, hosts the event that raises funds for a variety of student and teacher foreign exchange programs.
