Unique in Australia – and possibly to any Oktoberfest in the world – our Oktoberfest for Teens is the largest German language schools event in Australia. Almost 2,000 primary and secondary school students, and teachers – from Maryborough to Coolangatta, Toowoomba to the Bayside – descend on Brisbane Showgrounds (RNA) for their own special German day out! Students and teachers immerse themselves in German language, culture, traditions, games, food and fun at Oktoberfest For Teen’s authentic best.
Organised by Louise Moeller from Oktoberfest Brisbane and Paula Hay, head of the German Teachers’ Branch, the event makes German language and culture come alive. The dedicated team has also developed a six-week interactive learning program with additional resources for all participating schools as part of the integrated learning journey for the weeks leading up to this schools’ German Festival. They also actively participate in various educational and German language initiatives throughout the year.
This important event within the Oktoberfest Brisbane festival is an unforgettable educational day of great German fun, food, competitions, entertainment and, most importantly, language. Learn and use your German skills with almost 2,000 other students and teachers, and immerse yourself in the most authentic German festival experience in Australia!
