If you missed out this year, then all I can suggest is keep an eye out for when tickets go on sale in 2016 for the Sydney Oktoberfest in the Gardens. I attended the event which had rides, DJ’s, bands, food and of course plenty of drinks…lots of beer!
Inspired by our love of the traditional Bavarian festival and great beer, Oktoberfest in the Gardens features a massive big top beer hall, authentic German food stalls, roving performers, sideshow alley, silent disco and an eclectic mix of entertainment and competitions across multiple stages throughout the afternoon and evening.
I arrived at 3.00pm and by then the crowd was well and truly into party mode.
As an added bonus tickets to Oktoberfest in the Gardens included a commemorative event stein (560ml) and complimentary drink from an extensive range.
BEER HALL AND GERMAN STAGE
This was the largest big top beer hall seen at any Oktoberfest event across the country seating over 4,000 Oktoberfest fans and provided a fantastic vantage point to eat, drink, hear and see everything that is Oktoberfest.
The main outdoor stage featured top local bands throughout the day and the best DJ’s into slate into the night. Despite the threat of rain, and a few drops Oktoberfesters kept on dancing.
Featuring nearly 30 local DJ’s across a variety of genre’s, this massive three-channel, 500 person silent disco was one of the hits.
Mingling amongst the crowd there were plenty of roving entertainers….not that anyone seemed to need to be more entertained than they were.
As much as I would have like to dare myself, I decided not to try on of the rides but plenty of other people lined up to have a thrill on them.
Oktoberfest in the Gardens was a big success, and I was gobsmacked at how many people took the time to dress authentically for the occasion, except me...oops!
