A huge, German-style Oktoberfest event returns to London this autumn, pitching up at three locations across four weekends — and tickets are already on sale.
London Oktoberfest has been delighting fans of beer/sausages/good times since 2011 — emulating the world-famous Oktoberfest celebrations which take place in Munich every year. In 2023, Hammersmith, Ealing AND Finsbury Square are each getting in on the Oktoberfest action. Prost!
Be transported to Bavaria without so much as having to find your passport. At London Oktoberfest, you'll step inside a huge marquee (capacity: 2000) filled with long tables, and beautifully festooned for the occasion. Indulge in beer specially crafted for Oktoberfest in a small brewery close to Nuremberg — before being shipped over to London in a giant tanker, then poured, ice cold, into stein glasses for your enjoyment. Delicious.
German food, including juicy bratwurst, is available to soak up the brews — and served by wait staff in traditional costumes; think dirndl (a Bavarian dress) and lederhosen (needs no explanation...).
While drink and food is central to the London Oktoberfest celebrations, the entertainment is important too, creating a lively, knees-up atmosphere all night long. Bands travel from Germany to perform live, keeping things authentically raucous as partygoers dance and sing along (fuelled by a couple of those steins, naturally).
Got a work party in the planning? Corporate bookings are available for groups of 8+, offering an unforgettable night out with colleagues or clients — especially when you throw in the Bavarian dress up package, providing each member of the group with their own dirndl or lederhosen for the evening. Plus, the party cranks up an extra notch in Finsbury Square on 28 October — the special Halloween edition of London Oktoberfest.
If you've always wanted to experience a Bavarian-style Oktoberfest, you can do so here in London this autumn — without needing to get on a plane.
London Oktoberfest 2023 runs at Normand Park, Hammersmith (21-23 September), Walpole Park, Ealing (19-21 October), and Finsbury Square (26-28 October and 2-4 November). Tickets are on sale now.
