This year’s Oktoberfest Dublin is getting closer and beer lovers are in for a treat as the local rendition of the world-famous festival promises to be a two week long celebration of beer, food and Bavarian tradition. Starting on September the 14th and until the 1st of October, Oktoberfest Dublin will take place in George’s Dock and it will gather a taste of all you’ll find in the huge festivity in Munich.
Dirndl-wearing ladies and guys rocking the traditional Lederhosen will be helping set the atmosphere and showcasing these colourful and authentic attire. Drinks-wise, expect loads of Erdinger Irish Oktoberfest, the classic wheat beer that is now a big part of the event, as well as Erdinger Festbier (cold filtered wheat beer) and Erdinger alkoholfrei (a non alcoholic beer), wine and soft drinks will also be available.
Regarding food options, the list is mouth-watering: Bratwurst, steak, burgers, leberkäs, haxn, sauerkraut, roasted potatoes, hot dogs, Burgundian ham, crepes, pretzels and more will surely tempt you to a bite or two.
Live entertainment will be provided by Bavarian band The Mostlandstürmer, who will alternate with a live DJ performance between sets.
This year, weeknights are themed nights at Oktoberfest Dublin with Pink Tuesdays dedicated to celebrating gay pride and LGBTQ rights. Expect a fabulous drag show in the main marquee.
Wacky Wednesdays follow; embrace your silliest and have fun, costumes are optional but encouraged.
And if you work in the hospitality business, Mondays are for you. Industry Night is here to help you enjoy your day off, because those who work on the weekend also like to have fun!
