Hello all, since many of you have been asking, we wanted to announce that unfortunately, we are not planning to have Vegan Oktoberfest in Los Angeles in 2018. Thanks to all of you who have sent us hopeful emails and messages. We are still working on finding a home for this event with a group of people who we believe would run it well and put our customers first. We will certainly make any major future announcements here if we have them. Thanks again for your support!

Hello vegan food and beer lovers. This is David, the producer of Vegan Oktoberfest and I have an official announcement I wanted to share but am sad to make. Vegan Oktoberfest will not be happening again in 2017. I am currently exploring possibilities to see that the event returns in 2018 but nothing has been determined or finalized at this point. So for now, no Vegan Oktoberfest this year and we will have to see what the future holds.

I do want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported, worked on, attended, or participated in the event in any capacity since its inception. Three years ago Vegan Oktoberfest was nothing but an idea. Skeptics called it the "Wurst Idea Ever." Some people said we wouldn't be able to draw 1,000 people. We truly did not know what to expect.

But to have over 10,000 people attend our first three events, receive worldwide attention, spawn many imitators, and even be mocked by The Onion (my favorite press ever), was beyond our expectations.

Though producing the event was very challenging at times, seeing the way that volunteers, vendors, performers, and everyone who attended came together to create such a great atmosphere was something special. I have had multiple people tell me that the Vegan Oktoberfest crowd was the best crowd they have ever seen at any food or beer festival--the right mix of fun, engaged, and welcoming that does not come together often.

It has been so great to see vegans bringing their non-vegan friends, people going all out for costume or stein holding contests, and people supporting great vendors and local organizations that try to make the world a better place for animals. I hope that this event will return in the future and we will make an announcement as soon as we have one regarding a 2018 event.

Once again, thank you for making Vegan Oktoberfest a very special experience. I know I speak for our entire team, our vendors, and volunteers when I say that we are very grateful for your support!

Listen up food and beer lovers!

Vegan Oktoberfest officially arrives tomorrow and we are ready for the celebration of the season! The food is prepped. The kegs are waiting to be tapped. And the bands are ready for showtime!

Here's everything you need to know to make the most of this one of a kind event including a full schedule at the bottom!

Age: The event is strictly 21 and over so BRING YOUR ID.

Tickets: VIP tickets are already sold out and GA are almost gone so get your tickets now at www.veganoktoberfest.com. Please print out your ticket(s) and bring them to the event to gain entry.

VIP Area: The VIP area is in the building located to the right of the stage. There are indoor restrooms and an upstairs balcony area along with some upstairs seating. We recommend that VIPs hit some of their favorite GA spots for the first hour to 90 minutes and then try some of the exclusive pours in the VIP area.

Transportation/Parking: For those driving use 450 South Bixel Street, Los Angeles 90017 as the address. There is limited free street parking in the area if you can snag it. If not, there are many paid lots nearby.For those taking public transit, the 7th Street Metro Station is only a half mile away from the venue.

Beer Service: Every GA or VIP ticket holder will receive a complimentary 14 ounce stein, unlimited sample pours, and tickets they can redeem for 3 full 14 ounce pours. We recommend trying a few beers, then getting a full pour of one of your favorites and enjoying some great food and entertainment. Then do that 2 or 3 more times ;)

Gluten-Free Goodness: Vegan Oktoberfest will feature ample gluten-free food options. For the drinkers, Ace Cider, 101 Cider House, Anthem Cider, Honest Abe's Hard Cider, Rev Nats Hard Cider, Kombucha Dog, and The Dudes' Brewing have got you covered!

Dress: It's Oktoberfest and let's be honest, it's just more fun to dress up so traditional Oktoberfest attire is strongly encouraged. There's even a prize for the best costume!
