On Saturday October 29th, the City of Menifee and the Menifee Chamber of Commerce hosted the Fall Festival and Oktoberfest. It was a big hit with the citizens of Menifee!

The event had something for everyone including trick-or-treating for the little ones, a kid zone with games, a costume contest, a beer garden and live bands for the adults including country music and contemporary rock music brought to you by Macy’s Rising Star.

Breweries: Some of the breweries included The Mason Jar, Ballast Point, Karl Strauss, Garage Brewing, Black Market Brewing, and Hanger 24. The Menifee Valley Chamber of Commerce and The City of Menifee Community Services Department worked very hard to have a beer garden this year. Everyone on this committee agreed by saying “ So many people in Menifee are wanting a Fun for the WHOLE family event“. Of course everyone that made this possible including the support of the city council voted 4 to 1 to allow the sell of beer at this event and upcoming events like Independence day,  and an upcoming Music and Arts Festival will be safe and well managed. At this event the staff, local police and MPS security made sure they checked ID when buying tickets and again at the gates. The Breweries, staff and the patrons all agree it was an amazing addition to showcase our local industry. And will differently be back for next year!

Music and Entertainment: Q103.3 and Radio 94.5 both broadcasted live from the event and allowed the public to take pictures with the bands and ask questions after their sets. The bands were a big hit with the crowd as there were many teenagers and adults dancing to the music.

Vendors and Food: There were a slew of vendors and businesses at the festival including Mary-Kay, Aldi, and Costco, to name a few. A variety of food trucks and vendors selling hot-dogs, pizza, cotton candy, fudge, funnel cakes, you name it!

The event also brought in different politicians promoting their campaigns including Neil Winter, who is running to be the Mayor of Menifee, and Tim Sheridan who is running for Congress to represent the 42nd District of California.

Neil Winter was giving out t-shirts and candy for the little ones. Tim Sheridan was giving out buttons, pamphlets, and of course, CANDY! The event was organized to run smoothly as there were police officers monitoring the beer garden to make sure only citizens 21 or older entered.

There were firemen, paramedics and local police making sure the event ran smoothly. It was a perfect event that was safe for the kids and fun for the adults!

 

Thank you to the people of Menifee for your support and making it the best part of the event… See you next year!
