Tickets for the 10th anniversary Oktoberfest in Edinburgh are on sale now: when is it, and how to book?
A giant events tent will host four days of fun, from strictly over 18 beer nights to family friendly Sunday lunches, with the best of Bavaria on tap in the heart of the city.
The traditional Oktoberfest comes with all the atmosphere, culture and tradition of Germany’s much-loved export – and everyone is wilkommen!
When is it on?
Oktoberfest organisers have organised a hectic tour schedule around Europe this year, and are delighted to be back in Edinburgh to celebrate the 10th anniversary.
As it is the anniversary, there’s even more fun than usual. It runs from Thursday, October 5, to Sunday, October 8. On the Thursday and Friday the opening hours are 4pm to 11pm, on Saturday it is open 11am to 4.30pm, then 5.30pm to 11pm, and on Sunday it is 12.30pm to 7.30pm.
A feast of food and beer
If you love bratwurst, schnitzel, pretzels and specially brewed Bavarian beer you’ll want to get your hands on tickets ASAP, before they sell out. Whether you turn it into a night out with family and friends, celebrate a birthday or go for after work drinks with colleagues, the Oktoberfest tent makes a fun-filled destination.
Of course, there’s no party without music, and the resident band will get your toes tapping with Oompa band sounds and catchy instrumental Schlager tunes, as you raise your stein and say Prost! to a fun night out.
Dress to impress
All the staff will be in costume, and it’s even more fun if you do the same – slap on the lederhosen or dazzle in your dirndl, as traditional dress is very much the mode. You can even buy your own in advance online or at Oktoberfest itself.
General tickets and packages are on sale now. Prices started from just £5, with student deals, Bavarian package deals, an Oktoberfest special and a VIP offering with plenty to eat and drink included, all available to pre-book online. See website for full details.
Please remember to be Drink Aware, drink sensibly and enjoy a safe and neighbour-friendly festival.
