Fridays & Saturdays
Fridays and Saturdays have earned legendary status at Oktoberfest Brisbane. Our world-famous Bavarian flair will heighten spirits and ignite the city. The Bavarian Village is open from 12pm to Midnight, so start early and stay late.
Following century-old Bavarian tradition, Brisbane’s Lord Mayor, Adrian Schrinner, will tap the first keg of beer at the Festival’s Anzapfen ceremony on the first Friday, signalling the flow of Bier, good cheer, live entertainment, and authentic cultural experiences.
The Bavarian Oompah Band will have everyone swaying and chinking steins to their catchy tunes. Heidi’s yodels will lift the audience into the Alpine treetops, and the frenetic energy of the Alpenrosen Dance Group never fails to get everyone shoe-slapping. Join the roaring crowd as we search for the most German at heart with our Miss Oktoberfest Brisbane competition and cheer on our Bavarian Strongmen battling it out for the title!
For the first time ever, we’re rewarding those who purchase tickets early with an Autobahn Express Service that allows you to ‘skip the queue’ and grab a stein in super speed.
2022 sees our Friday sessions kick start at Midday! Work a half day then enter a world of immersive Bavarian festivities. Don your Lederhosen and Dirndls ready for a night of fun and celebration – it’s the ultimate way to herald in the weekend.
With an action-packed program across two massive weekends, Friday and Saturday sessions are your chance to join the biggest and best Bavarian party under one roof, experiencing the ultimate German culture (minus the jetlag).
