Ever dreamed of dancing ‘til you drop at one of the world’s biggest cultural festivals but could never seem to make it happen? Well, pop on your very best beer wench threads and begin to up your beer intake because Oktoberfest is coming to the Gold Coast.
Mark Saturday, October 5th in your calendar as the day you will experience the best of German culture right here in our own backyard.
The Gold Coast Sports and Leisure Centre in Carrara will host the multicultural festival for the very first time with attendees set to experience the traditional culture of Munich’s beloved Oktoberfest.
Based on history and festivities from the past, Oktoberfest will deliver a traditional event with a modern twist that’s bound to be a day to be remembered.
The centre will be completely transformed into a Bavarian theme complete with a giant beer hall, alfresco dining area, multiple stages and of course, all of the tastiest German food and beverages.
The German Sausage Hut will provide a mouth-watering selection of German frankfurters with sauerkraut and freshly baked pretzels.
Oktoberfest will offer a fine selection of beverages including traditional German brewed beer by Weihenstephan and specially brewed German beers from Newstead Brewing Co. A selection of wine and other German favourites will also be available.
Of course, the entertainment will also be perfectly themed with German music and dance the perfect way to get amongst the frivolity after a stein or two and there’ll also be a Mr and Mrs Oktoberfest strongman competition.
To ensure the event is as close as possible to Munich’s Oktoberfest, there’ll be big brass bands on show along with some of Australia’s favourite DJs and a few local ones too.
If you’re looking for something a little bit different to go to on the Gold Coast, look no further.
Unearth your Lederhosen, grab a good time crew and get ready for a day of dancing, drinking and traditional German culture.
