Oktoberfest Brisbane is coming
- fun for your whole family!
Don your Dirndl and Lederhosen and get ready to celebrate Australia's largest German Festival as Oktoberfest Brisbane returns in 2017 to ignite the city with its famous Bavarian flair.
More than 43,000 culture-seeking enthusiasts attending the event each year and Festival directors Kim and Boris Zoulek promise this year's program will be even more spectacular with the iconic Festival celebrating its mighty 10th instalment!
As the Brisbane Showgrounds transforms into a mini Bavaria, saluting the famous Oktoberfest celebration in Munich, there truly is no better place in Australia to embrace your inner German than at Oktoberfest Brisbane from Oktober 6 - 8 and 13 - 15.
The 4000-square metre Oktoberfest Tent will host a line-up of live entertainment including from the six-member Bavarian Oompah band 'Münchner Buam', flown in specially from Germany each year, yodeller Heidi, and shoe-slapping, cow-bell ringing performances from the Alpenrosen Dance Group. The popular Miss Oktoberfest Brisbane, Beardmeister and Bavarian Strongmen competitions will round out the action inside the main tent.
A walk outside offers an equally enjoyable contrast, with the opportunity to explore the most enjoyable aspect of any German festival - delicious food - as well as traditional festival stalls, and fun activities for kids including carnival rides and the ever-popular KinderZone.
A pit stop at the Munich Biergarten proves a popular place to rest your legs at one of the long timber Biergarten Tables, wash down a traditional German bite to eat with a world-famous beer, and soak up the surrounding atmosphere as the event transitions into night.
