Oktoberfest Brisbane 2014, the largest German Festival in Australia is back for our seventh year and will be bigger and better than ever!
Last year we saw more than 36,000 visitors ‘embrace their inner German’ and experience the fabulous German food, traditions, culture and fun that Oktoberfest Brisbane delivers every year.
Why is Oktoberfest Brisbane so popular with so many people? Well for starters it’s our authenticity. Everything we do; every plate of food, every entertainer and every bench-seat is typically German (the are the SAME bench-seats used at Munich’s Oktoberfest)! Our authentic Oktoberfest Tent, with its traditional wooden flooring, ceiling wreaths, bunting and decorations are exactly what you’d find in Germany – and most come from Germany. Even our handcrafted beers are brewed according to the German Purity Law, packed with flavour and made only for our German Festival – you’ll find them nowhere else in the world. Our visitors really do get to experience Germany right here on their doorstep. They have such a great time and the word of mouth is enormous.
Our visitors love to sit back and enjoy the traditional music of our Bavarian Oktoberfest Band flown in from Munich, Germany or the entertainment on stage from traditional dancers, cowbell ringers, German-style puppet theatre, and our yodelling masters Heidi and Adeline.
Social media has become a huge part of spreading the Oktoberfest Brisbane story – people love to share their photos of dressing up in the traditional dirndl and lederhosen, dancing the Fliegerlied, and tackling a huge pork knuckle with sauerkraut.
Oktoberfest Brisbane offers everyone the chance to learn about German culture and history, and celebrate Oktoberfest at the same time. There’s fun for the whole family; relax in the authentic Munich Biergarten, be entertained by the band and shows, see the latest German tracht fashion (traditional German costume) and enjoy multiple rides and activities right across the festival at the Brisbane Showgrounds.
