Oktoberfest

Friday 5 October to Sunday 7 October

At 7pm on Friday 5th the Mayor and Mayoress will tap the ceremonial wooden keg and get Oktoberfest started right here at Haigh Woodland Park in true Munich fashion.

There will be live entertainment with the fantastic Oompah Band, “Brasswurst” plus DJ.

A Bavarian Strongman Competition; let’s see who’s the real king of Haigh Oktoberfest! See how long you can hold a two pint stein filled with bier. Winner receives the stein and bier.

Arm wrestling; we’ll select a group of guys and girls, split them into teams and have them face off. The winning team gets an assortment of prizes: steins, t-shirts and of course, bragging rights for the night!

The event will be held in a specially erected 500 seat capacity Festzelt (Marquee) along with a traditional German Biergarten und Wursthaus.

So dust off your lederhosen and dirndls and come along to what promises to be one huge Oktoberfest party.
