Oktoberfest Brisbane | Bowen Hills

7 October, 2022 - 16 October, 2022

Oktoberfest Brisbane
With six HUGE festival days across two weekends, the bold tastes, sounds and spirit of one of the world’s most iconic festivals will transform the Brisbane Showgrounds, bringing together stein-raisers from across the country.
The action-packed entertainment programme changes daily and offers something for everyone, including plenty of activities to keep the kids & family entertained. Expect lots of singing with the Bavarian Oompah Band, plus fabulous yodelling with Helga and dancing with frenetic energy of the Alpenrosen Dance Group! Kids can join in the Hat Dance, groove along to the forever popular Chicken Dance, get their face painted, cuddle some baby animals and most importantly feast on German food like pretzels and jam filled donuts to fill those hungry tummies!
Accept no imitations! Oktoberfest Brisbane is the only authentic German Oktoberfest celebration in Australia. So, dust off your dirndl, strap into your lederhosen, gather your friends and family {Freunde und Familie} on 7-9 & 14-16 Oktober 2022.
