For two whole weekends in October, the Brisbane Showgrounds (RNA) is transformed into our very own slice of Germany, with entertainment at the top of our list! Entertainment for all ages will be on show at this year’s festival.
Oktoberfest Brisbane 2014 is the perfect opportunity to kick back after a busy week, relax in the ‘Munich Biergarten’ and listen to the band, which has been flown all the way from Munich! That’s right, every year we fly our immensely popular German folk band – ‘Münchner Buam’, direct from the home of the original Oktoberfest. This band knows how to rock – Bavarian style – and will play all the traditional Oktoberfest and popular German folk festival tunes, creating an authentic atmosphere that simply can’t be replicated by anyone else.
In the Oktoberfest tent, the party never stops! We have great entertainment for the young to the ‘young at heart’. See, dance, sing, touch, learn, clap, ‘schunkel’ and laugh to all the shows, activities and competitions in our massive Oktoberfest Tent, German Connections Tent, Munich Biergarten, and Kinder-Zone.
A taste of the entertainment on offer:
- Yodelling masters, Heidi and Adeline, will transport you to the mountains of Germany with their amazing talents. Get involved in their crowd sing-a-long or discover your cowbell ringing skills… will you be lucky enough to be picked from the audience this year?
- Traditional German dancing, leg slapping and cow bell ringing from the popular Alpenrosen Dance Group. Join in the Hat Dance – looks easy, but it gets tricky!
- ‘Schunkel’ to your heart’s content! Link arms with your neighbour and sway in time to the music, or try the ‘advanced’ version… left, right, up and down..
So come by yourself, with your friends or family and head to the Oktoberfest Tent, the German Connections Tent, or laze about in the Munich Biergarten and just let the music wash over you.
And why not dress up as well! Here at Oktoberfest Brisbane we always encourage traditional German dress… it is the biggest German Festival in Australia after all! This is JUST what’s on in the Oktoberfest Tent… wait until you see all we have on stage in the German Connections Tent and outside in the Kinder-Zone!
