“Josef Bischof, my father, came to this country in 1952 from Germany and dreamed of recreating a piece of his homeland here to share with others,” said Cyndie Kasko, co- owner of Old World Restaurant. “His dream came true in Huntington Beach in 1978, after he and my mom built 50 homes above 50 shops in the traditional Bavarian style and opened to the public. That same year he started the very first Oktoberfest celebration in Orange County.”
Old World Huntington Beach is located at 7561 Center Avenue in Huntington Beach. For public information, please visit www.oldworld.ws
