It’s a weekend featuring festivals at Golden Gate Park. First up is a cultural get-together on Saturday at one of the park’s finest eateries. On Sunday, prepare for a day filled with rock music that will have your head and body in motion.

Oktoberfest – Park Chalet

Oktoberfest is one of the most famous events in Germany, as well as the largest fair in the world. Since the chances of you enjoying the festivities in Europe are pretty slim, the Park Chalet is hoping you’ll join in their celebration on Saturday, September 25, 2010. The third annual Oktoberfest Celebration at Park Chalet will kick off at 1 p.m. – promising Liter Steins of beer and edibles from an outdoor barbeque and bar.

A live performance from Deutscher Musikverein of San Francisco – a 30-piece German oom-pah band will fill the air with authentic sounds. It’s suggested to arrive early to get a decent seat. Bring a lawn chair or picnic blanket. There’s no need to make a reservation, simply stop by to enjoy good food, drink, music and company.

Now & Zen Festival – Speedway Meadow

Say goodbye to summer with the annual season-end concert hosted by Alice 97.3 that will feature the talent of Sara Bareilles, Plain White T’s, Natasha Bedingfield, Five For Fighting, and Ryan Star. In addition to the handful of rock musicians and bands scheduled to entertain, the Now & Zen Festival promises a collection of satisfying food, vendors and specialty booths. Head for Speedway Meadow in Golden Gate Park on Sunday, September 26, 2010 (11 a.m. – 5 p.m.) to take advantage of this free event.
