Oktoberfest 2021: What’s on?

18+ event: Saturday 23 October

Oktoberfest is all about the food, the music, the bier and the fun, all with a unique German-inspired vibe.

When it comes to food, get ready to chow down on traditional German bratwurst, hot chips, and pretzels… And that’s just to whet your appetite! Our traditional German BBQ will have you coming back for more (and more) throughout the day. Taste our signature Pork Shank and fall in love with our delicious Cheese Kransky. If that’s not enough there’ll be loaded potato skins, ice cream and more. Of course, they’ll also be a selection of vegetarian options as well.

No self-respecting event can call itself a festival without some awesome live music. At Oktoberfest, this has to be an um-pa-pa band, and no-one does this better than The Polka Dots. This buskin-style quartet will have you singing, dancing and generally making merry as they blast out their incredible blend of music that’s guaranteed to have you hollering for more.

As if that wasn’t enough, Moves Like Swagger will satisfy all your party music needs with their amazing covers of RnB dance hits from the 80s and 90s right through to today.

The bier, naturally, is the stuff of dreams. With a microbrewery on-site, Elmar’s brew their specialty Oktoberfest tipple – Märzen – or you can satisfy your thirst with Kölsch & Pilsner on tap. There’s also a cocktail bar, something that’s brand new for 2021, Naturally, there’ll also be some excellent local wines on offer and plenty of soft drinks too.

And then… There’s the fun. We bring back the best dressed competition, plus many traditional games and events, such as the tug-o-war, stein holding and Bratwurst eating – plus some other exciting ones especially for 2021.

Family day is always a sell-out at Oktoberfest. Offering all the delicious food, drink and (family-friendly) fun that Saturday’s guests enjoy, there’s a whole host of extras to ensure that the youngest members of the family are perfectly catered for.
