The Phoenix Club in Anaheim is a special place to celebrate Oktoberfest in that it was an organization formed in 1960 shortly after WWII among a small group of 15 people that wanted to preserve their German language and customs after the war.  The name, The Phoenix Club was chosen after the mythological bird that rose up from ashes to be alive again. The organization has continued to grow over the years and now has 3,000 families as members!!

Activities are held all year-round, but the most popular is Oktoberfest. Oohm-pah bands direct from Germany play traditional polkas.  Folk dancers “plattl” (stomp and slap) to accordion music in the “Festhalle”. Revelers still dine on bratwurst, pretzels, Bavarian pastries and, of course, German beer, in the Biergarten!  This is definitely a sight to see and a fun event to attend! 🙂

Proper Oktoberfest Wear

In order to prepare for Oktoberfest, it is important to know how to dress… I learned something interesting this year about way of dress that I would like to share…Sure, I always pull out my Dirndl (a traditional dress worn in Germany) and my husband always throws on his Lederhosen (German for “leather breeches” – men’s traditional clothing in Germany), but the way the bow is tied on the Dirndl actually has different meanings. See pictures throughout this post of my husband and me in Dirndl & Lederhosen. 🙂

As for the bow on the Dirndl, every year, I have worn mine tied in the back because it is the way the costume is displayed on the Package I bought at Party City…however, I have just learned that tying it in the back actually means you are a waitress or a widow…I am neither so I will have to rethink where my bow will be tied this year. 🙂  If you tie your bow on the right side of your Dirndl, it means you are taken, and if it tied on the left, you are single. If you tie it on the front (which I simply do not like the way that looks ;)) it means you are still innocent. I have never seen it tied like that when I have attended Oktoberfest… 🙂

  1. My boyfriend and I go to this Oktoberfest every year!! It’s the best! I don’t really like beer so I always get 7up & Feigling vodka (fig flavored!). It’s my fav!! The honey jäger shots are super yum too!

  2. I’ve been to the Phoenix Club Oktoberfest several times–although its been a couple of years. I LOVE their dinners there; plus walking around and people-watching.

  3. Hi Dani, this sounds like it would be SO fun!! I’ve never been to the Phoenix Club or an Oktobersest. I would love an opportunity to win tix. Thank you!! 🙂

  4. We don’t have these types of festivals around here… Maybe you should start a mobile event/party planning biz? you would be amazing at it!

  5. I love Octoberfest! We don’t drink, or eat meat, but we still love to feel the culture of the old world where our ancestry comes from. Dani, you look adorable in that outfit!

  6. I grew up in outside of OKC, and we had the funnest Octoberfest events. I haven’t been to one in 30 years but would love to find one again in the near future. I remember them to be a lot like your pictures… just FUN!!!
