Oktoberfest Brisbane

Oktoberfest Brisbane

Chuck on your dirndl and grab a beer, it’s Oktoberfest!

By Amber Lowther | 9th August 2016

It’s that time of year where we dress up in our Dirndl and Lederhosen and spend the day acting like true Germans! Join Festival Directors Kim & Boris in bringing a mini Bavaria to life in Brisbane.

Praised for being one of the Top 10 Oktoberfests outside Germany, our Brisbane Oktoberfest will once again hit the Brisbane Showgrounds this October 7-9 and 14-16.

If you love the food and culture, you won’t be disappointed. We’re talking German sausages, baked pork knuckle, strudels, European chocolates, a long list of German pastries, lots of German beer, schnaps and everything in-between! Take a seat in the beer tent with your mates for an authentic German drinking experience!

There will be stacks of entertainment for you to enjoy while you embrace all things German! You can look forward to Bavarian Oompah band 'Münchner Buam', yodeller Heidi, Alpenrosen Dance Group and heaps of other acts. Also, wait until you see what’s in store to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the The Bavarian Purity Law (Das Bayerische Reinheitsgebot). 

If you’re up for it, enter the competition to be Miss Oktoberfest for the ladies; gents can look forward to the Beardmeister and Bavarian Strongmen competitions.

Oktoberfest Brisbane is an event for all ages - offering educational and fun activities such as: Learn German, Street Science Show, Alpenrosen, Glockenspiel – learn to play, Animal Planet’s Snake Boss Reptile Show, Kasperltheather, Oceanlife Discovery, Little Green Thumbs, Kindermusik, Circus workshops, an animal farm and fun carnival rides!

Tickets are on sale now. Early Bird ends September 19.
