Hoes Down Harvest Fest

The Hoes Down Harvest Festival is dedicated to honoring and promoting the knowledge of agricultural arts and sustainable rural living through inspiration and education. Our goals extend beyond the weekend of fun and education.

Every year, for 30 years, the Hoes Down has generated valuable resources for local and statewide organizations working on projects which benefit sustainable agriculture and rural communities.

Please note that all tickets will be pre-sale this year. There will be no ticket sales at the gate. Our volunteers are updating the Hoes Down web site. Please check there for more information.

Redwood City Octoberfest – Final Day!

The true tradition of Munich’s famous annual festival comes to Redwood City for Oktoberfest, with a huge decked-out Oktoberfest tent on Courthouse Square – complete with over 1,100 feet of “family style” bench seating, lots of fun and merriment, music, dancing, contests, cold beer and other beverages, food, and more!

The entrance fee includes a commemorative stein & 1 drink ticket (beer or soda depending on ticket type), along with great German-style entertainment featuring AlpinersUSA and The Golden Gate Bavarian Club. Delicious German food and extra drink tickets will be sold separately.

Downtown Redwood City’s Oktoberfest extravaganza offers authentically delicious German food, featuring pretzels and brats, along with enticingly cold beer. Dancing, singing, and tons of audience participation will include dance contests, stein holding, yodeling contest, skits with hand gestures to select songs, etc., not to mention many variations of the “international” chicken dance.
