Don the lederhosen or dirndl, raise a stein and get ready…
Melbourne’s biggest and best Oktoberfest bash kicks off this Saturday, 22 September at Munich Brauhaus South Wharf. An official keg tap of the first Oktoberfest bier at midday launches a line-up of family-friendly entertainment, including a colourful street parade of costumed performers and oompah bands that will bring South Wharf to life.
At 2pm there is a sausage eating competition, at 4pm a Dogs of Oktoberfest contest, at 5pm stein holding championships and at 8pm the Best Dressed Oktoberfest winner will be announced. All day there will be prizes, special Oktoberfest menus and the first of five Oktoberfest biers imported from Bavaria, Hofbräu München, will be on tap. Get into the Oktoberfest spirit at the pop-up bier tent.
Guests who miss out on the Saturday antics can join in on a second round of keg taps and on stage challenges on Sunday, 23 September. The Oktoberfest celebrations continue at Munich Brauhaus and The Bavarian restaurants at Knox and Highpoint until Sunday, 28 October.
It is located at 45 South Wharf Promenade, South Wharf
