Bavarian Strongmen Search

Do you have what it takes to be the Oktoberfest Brisbane Bavarian Strongmen for 2015?

We’re calling on the toughest of the tough and manliest of the men to join us for our action-packed Bavarian Strongmen competition that will have you showing off your physical prowess while working off the wurst!

Bavarian Strongmen is one of the most popular and fiercely fought competitions taking place at Oktoberfest Brisbane. As the name suggests, this strength-based contest demands some serious muscle.


Taking place on the second Saturday of Oktoberfest Brisbane, teams of three will need to prove their strength and endurance in various Bavarian-style skill tests such as keg rolling, krapfen (jam donut) eating, tug-o-war and many other (slightly Olympic) competitive activities.

Keeping in line with Bavarian traditions, teams will be judged not only on their strength but also on their stein-holding abilities.


When: Saturday 17 Oktober 2015

Where: Oktoberfest Brisbane at the Brisbane Showgrounds (entry via Gregory Tce, Bowen Hills)
