Oktoberfest In The Gardens is a series of annual one-day festivals that recreate the party vibe of the Munich Oktoberfest's liveliest areas.
The Melbourne leg takes place at the Melbourne Showgrounds on October 14, featuring two massive beer halls, authentic German food stalls, fairground rides, roving performers, a sideshow alley, silent disco and an eclectic mix of entertainment and competitions across multiple stages throughout the afternoon and evening.
Guests can taste their way through a large selection of imported German beer (from Weihenstephan, Hofbrau, Paulaner, Lowenbrau, Spaten, Erdinger, Tucher, Hundehaus and more), cider, wine and a range of other beverages and also get a commemorative event stein (550ml) and can of German beer (or non-alcoholic alternative) on entry.
In 2017, the Melbourne event will feature the biggest beer hall Australia has ever seen, capable of seating more than 5,000 guests. Inside, you'll find German brass bands, yodellers, roving accordion players, pretzel fräuleins and a number of other German bands on and off stage.
