DIG out your dirndls and dust down your lederhosen - because the biggest authentic Oktoberfest in the North West is coming to Liverpool in association with Bavarian brewery Maxlrainer.
So it’s time to raise a stein to a fantastic five days of fun, focused on bier, bratwurst and the best Oompah band around.
Oktoberfest will be running from Wednesday, September 28 to Sunday, October 2, at the cricket playing fields in sefton park
There’ll be two festival sessions from 12.30pm to 5pm, and 6pm to 10.30pm, so there’ll be plenty of time to enjoy everything that’s going on, in and around the big top.
The Bavarian food village will be serving traditional German food from sauerkraut to Bratwurst, and mouth watering roasted meats, to delicious dumplings and the perfect pretzels.
There’ll be entertainment from The Amazing Bavarian Stompers - the first British comedy Bavarian oompah band booked for a major German bier festival - as well as all the fun of a fairground, and more.
And, of course, there’ll be beer - (or bier!).
Oktoberfest Liverpool have teamed up with top German brewer Maxlrainer to present the event and make sure it has that authentic Bavarian look and feel. Located about 50km outside Munich, it’s one of only 12 breweries to have been awarded the title of Germany’s Brewer of the Year twice.
