German Bierfest

This fusion of authentic cultural experiences is expected to attract up to 10,000 visitors of all ages and hopes to become an annual event.

Hot delicious wurst, luscious sweets and unique souvenirs will be among the German-inspired snacks and souvenirs. And thirsty adults can head to the Bier Garden for a cold German brew amid the relaxing ambiance of a lazy summer day.

For beer aficionados, Bavarian Weißbier, Festbier and Craftbier will be presented by Bavarian Festbeer Brewery, located in the north of Bavaria, Germany.

And with respect to long-standing traditions, brewing expertise and perfect flavor, the brew master has come up with a distinctive brew especially for the Bierfest.

If grapes are more your thing, the Sekt Garden will be serving the famous Sekt or German sparkling wine. While everyone can enjoy traditional German funfair games such as the Hau den Lukasstrongman test, bull-riding and shooting hut in the Fun Time Area.

There’ll be all night entertainment in the Fest Tent with live music and performances from a German band. And you can satiate the munchies with savoury German delicacies such as Schnitzel, Brezel and Hendl at the Bier Garden and inside the Fest Tent.

So embrace the party atmosphere by sharing the long tables and benches with friends and fellow revellers. There’s a limited capacity of 1,200 seats, so book online to secure your pew.

Children are welcome in the German Village and only on Sun in the Fest Tent. The age limit for the Fest Tent on other days except Sun is 18+.

German Village entrance is free. Fest Tent entrance is free on Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday and £5 on Friday and Saturday.
