A jam-packed final day on 19 Oktober features a full program of music, dancing, yodelling and carnival rides, cow-milking lessons, food demonstrations, face-painting, animal-petting and puppet theatre – and a dazzling lineup of German driving excellence on which to feast the senses!
Sunday is our final family fun day for 2014 and the Oktoberfest Brisbane action continues right up to the final encore by the band that evening. There’s plenty of time to make sure you’ve got the moves right for the Hat Dance with Alpenrosen– and to refine your cow-milking skills!
Our younger guests can enjoy the arty-crafty activities in our Bastelecke (craft corner) when they’re not enjoying the carnival rides. Kids, when you can tear your parents away from their slap-dancing lessons, there’s also the animal farm, puppet theatre and so much more to take in and enjoy.
Dads can take their time drooling over the sparkling engineering line-up at Autofest – come and join the admiring audience of other German automobile afficionados at this special annual event. Who knows? You might even meet the new German love of your (driving) life!
(If not, don’t despair, there’s always the dodgems – okay, they may not have three-pointed stars or four rings on them, but you can always pretend can’t you?)
Mums can check out Emily Loo’s OktoberfEAST food fusion take on the festival’s classic schnitzel burger – both German and Asian-style. See how Emily reinterprets this sublime signature dish from K&K’s Wolfgang Kaspar, and pick up some handy hints from both these culinary whizzes!
And on Sunday afternoon everyone can have a chance to meet the high-energy boys from our Münchner Buam band in person before they fly back to Germany.
And you can bet on a big finish when this year’s German Festival finally wraps up at 8pm (last entry 7pm if you really need a final ‘fix’ to get you through to next year!)
After all that, dear friends, as the sun sets over the Brisbane Showgrounds, we bid you auf wiedersehen for another year…
