About this Event

Edinburgh Oktoberfest is a celebration that brings the spirit of the traditional Munich Oktoberfest to Scotland's capital. Held annually, this festival typically takes place in October and recreates the vibrant atmosphere of its Bavarian counterpart within Edinburgh, often at locations such as West Princes Street Gardens or similar central venues.

The event aims to provide an authentic Oktoberfest experience, complete with German beer, food, music, and festivities.

Highlights of Edinburgh Oktoberfest:

  • German Beer: Attendees can enjoy a variety of traditional German beers served in stein glasses, just like in Munich. These beers are specially brewed for Oktoberfest and are imported directly from Germany.

  • Bavarian Food: The culinary offerings include German favorites such as Bratwurst, Pretzels, and Schnitzel, providing a taste of Bavarian cuisine.

  • Live Music and Entertainment: The festival features live music from bands playing traditional German and Bavarian songs, encouraging guests to sing along, dance, and immerse themselves in the festive spirit.

  • Themed Decor: The venue is usually transformed with Oktoberfest decorations, including long communal tables, creating a setting that closely resembles the famous beer tents of Munich.

  • Traditional Attire: Visitors and staff often dress in traditional Bavarian attire, such as Lederhosen and Dirndls, adding to the authentic experience.

Edinburgh Oktoberfest is more than just a beer festival; it's a cultural event that offers a slice of German tradition in the heart of Edinburgh.

It attracts both locals and tourists looking to enjoy the communal atmosphere, delicious food and drink, and lively entertainment.
