Prost to steins and schnitzels at Oktoberfest on the Coast

With beers bigger than your head, salty snacks that err on the side of massive and more swine than you can poke a pork knuckle at, it's no surprise the annual Oktoberfest event is one of Australia’s favourite borrowed traditions. But this year, Gold Coasters needn't venture abroad, we can get a taste of the festivities with our very own Oktoberfest celebration presented by Weihenstephan, the oldest brewery in Germany. Prost to that, friends.


Whilst Oktoberfest celebrations traditionally take place over multiple weeks, Oktoberfest on the Coast will transform the Gold Coast Sports Precinct in Carrara into a German-inspired beer hall with music, beer (obviously), dancing, food, more beer and general frivolity on Saturday October 5. Speaking of beer, there will be multiple bars slinging some top-notch German tipple alongside tastes from Newstead Brewing Co., Jägermeister and Diablo Ginger Beer.

The super early bird tickets have been snapped up but the good news is there are plenty of general admission tickets available plus some lavish VIP options if you’re keen to take your Oktoberfest next level. Jump over Megatix to nab yourself a seat at the table. Oh and traditional attire is strongly encouraged so dust off your dirndl and don your lederhosen and get ready to dance the night away, German style.
