Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls – put on your Dirndl and Lederhosen, your dancing shoes and head to the Brisbane Showgrounds today for the official opening of Oktoberfest Brisbane 2017!
This afternoon Brisbane’s Lord Mayor Graham Quirk will tap the first keg and announce ‘O’zapft is!’ (It is tapped!) which will officially open this year’s event.
Once a year, the Brisbane Showgrounds transform into small Bavarian town, complete with a festival tent, marketplace and, of course, plenty of activities to keep you entertained all day long!
The Kinder Zone (children’s zone) will be offering a variety of fun and educational activities to keep the little ones busy: everything from the Street Science Show, learning to play the Glockenspiel, rides and our favourite – the farm animals! After hours of fun you can head to the marketplace to rehydrate and grab a plate of delicious food. You’ll be spoilt for choice with everything from schnitzel burgers to pork knuckles, potato salads, black forest cherry cake and sausages.
See you there!
