About Old World Huntington Beach Old World Village, Huntington Beach opened in 1978 and is home of the original Oktoberfest in Orange County. Nestled between the 405 freeways and Golden West College, hundreds of thousands have enjoyed the pulsating beat of oom-pah-pa bands flown in directly from Germany, the cheers and laughter of the dachshund races, as well as the bizarre but delightful ritual of the “Chicken Dance.” Specializing in German delicacies such as sauerkraut, bratwurst, sauerbraten, potato pancakes, schnitzel and apple strudel delight guests come daily to dine at Old World German Restaurant or shop at Old World’s Euro Market. Old World brings the charm of Munich, Germany to Southern California so everyone can “Eat, Drink, Dance & be Merry” and experience Europe without leaving the OC.”
