Bretzel, Bier, Boogie, Repeat…
While Oktoberfest may have finished up in Munich, the Bavarian beer celebrations are in full swing around Melbourne!
Oktoberfest in the Gardens Melbourne
Oktoberfest in the Gardens has fast become the ultimate Oktoberfest festival for those of us residing in Australia with its sell-out events getting bigger and better each year. This October is no exception with Oktoberfest in the Gardens back again, bringing along over 20 imported German beers, ciders and wines to ‘prost’ in your dirndl or lederhosen get up amongst the riverside beer halls and German food stalls.

The event will take you from a fun-filled afternoon to evening with themes roving performers, live music, carnival rides and on-stage events (sausage eating competition anyone?) as well as DJ sets and the ever fabulous silent disco (don’t diss it until you try it – I promise).
