Is a Pork Knuckle YOUR Destiny?

Do you love pork knuckle? Utterly and completely LOVE it? Do you love it enough to make sure you are the first one to indulge in it at Oktoberfest Brisbane in 2015, whilst also supporting a fantastic charity? Well, it’s time to answer your calling and place your bid – for the Pork Knuckle of Destiny!

The Pork Knuckle of Destiny is an auction that takes place in the lead up to Oktoberfest Brisbane, with all proceeds going to Youngcare Australia. On opening night the very first Pork Knuckle of the Festival is presented with great ceremony to the highest bidder and their team (6 people in total) at one of our prestigious tables in the Bavarian Corner. Presented with great fanfare and gusto, the Pork Knuckle of Destiny will cement your stature in the community as a true German food-lover and supporter of a great charity.

Bids are now open!
