In Collaboration with Plug Agency & Hong Kong Oktoberfest 2022
Dust off your lederhosen and your dirndls – Oktoberfest is back and better than ever! Hong Kong’s only outdoor Oktoberfest and biggest outdoor beer festival is resurrected after a two-year hiatus in a brilliant new home on the Southside, Water World Ocean Park, with all your favourite Bavarian food, beers, and entertainment. So gather your friends and get ready to say ‘Ein Prosit!’ to good times, good friends and good beer!
Inspired by our love of the traditional festival, Oktoberfest Southside will feature a giant tent serving a range of German and imported beers including Löwenbräu, Hoegaarden, Stella Artois and Blue Girl. They will be served alongside a belly-busting main meal of authentic Bavarian foods such as schnitzel, bratwurst and pork knuckle along with a scrumptious assortment of side dishes.
Brat-eating contests and live music
But that’s not all! The festivities – which take place Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from October 21 through November 6 – also include an eclectic mix of entertainment and competitions throughout the afternoons and evenings.
Think you have what it takes to become the ultimate Masskrugstemmen (stein holding) champion? Then try your hand at the Beer Stein Holding Contest – not for the faint of heart, contestants must hold a beer- (or water-) filled stein with a straight extended arm until only one remains victorious! Perhaps you prefer to show your strength in other ways, then get in line for the ultimate Brat Eating Contest. Bring your appetite for this ever-exciting race to the last bite, as contestants’ plates are loaded with Brats (or pretzels) and the first person to clean the plate wins.
For those that prefer to shine on stage then the Mr & Mrs Oktoberfest is the place to be. Bring your best Oktoberfest style and German talents to the show and compete for a chance to be crowned.
Hosting the fun will be our very own MC Fraulein, pantomime legend Terry Hart, sporting his fabulous Drag Queen style as Paula D. Udderwan, so come on down, drink, dance and sing along to the live Oompah band. As well as the nail-biting competitions there will also be fun games for more merriment including Giant Jenga and Cornhole bean bag tossing. If you plan to head down on Halloween weekend (28th – 30th Oct) you might be in for a fright, this weekend only enjoy SHOCKtoberfest – dress up in your spookiest costume to take part!
