Competition strong for the Oktoberfest Brisbane crowns in 2016

Oktoberfest Brisbane’s competitions promise to be bigger and better than before with interest pouring in to lay it all on the line for the illustrious titles of ‘Miss Oktoberfest Brisbane’, ‘Beardmeister’ and ‘Bavarian Strongmen’.

Miss Oktoberfest Brisbane (Saturday 8 Oktober)

If you’re after a beauty pageant, leave now! These renowned crowns are not for the faint-hearted. There will be spilt milk, lots of hair and Olympic tasks only those with a firm grip on German culture can handle.

Every festival has a favourite “Fräulein”, but Miss Oktoberfest Brisbane isn’t a beauty contest. Do you have what it takes to win this year’s coveted title along with the prestige, glamour and prize it brings?

Ladies, don your Dirndl and get ready for some rather unusual judging criteria. In order to take the coveted crown, you’ll need to show off your strength, fashion sense and German knowledge in a fast-paced environment – all while milking a cow. And there’ll be no crying over spilt milk!

Beardmeister (Friday 14 Oktober)

Things can get a little hairy in the battle of the beards (and ‘taches) as contestants put their grooming works of art on display to take out the ultimate Beardmeister title.
This year entrants will be judged by Jimmy Rod’s across three (3) categories:

  • Natural Moustache
  • Freestyle
  • Natural Beard.

Bavarian Strongmen (Saturday 15 Oktober)

It’s the ultimate test of German ‘life skills’, with the popular Bavarian Strongmen competition rewarding the 3-man team which can master a raft of Olympic-style tasks. The event promotes fierce rivalry between teams as they’re put to the ultimate test across challenges including keg rolling and “Krapfen” (jam donut) eating.

Proudly sponsored by two of the biggest and most Bavarian names in athletics – King of Cakes German Bakery and German Sausage Hut – it’s not to be missed. Grab two mates and start practising today.
