Oktoberfest für Familien

Time to dust off your Dirndl and leap into your Lederhosen!

Join us for a lovely afternoon and evening for families… at the Turner Scout Hall, for traditional Oktoberfest activities … suitable for families with children.  If you know other German families with kids in Canberra, feel free to bring them along and introduce them around.

The Oktober-Spielwelt-Fest will be held:

Saturday 9 November 2024
4:30pm to 10pm

Novemberfest is the new Oktoberfest… improved by better weather, we hope!

There will be lots of German food (see menu), German entertainment and fun.

This year’s event will feature traditional Oktoberfest games like Tug-of-War, Arm-Wrestling, and Can-Tosses… plus we are looking forward to great music.  What about a Schuhplattln session?!!

BYO picnic blanket, chairs, plate, cutlery, beer stein or mug, juice cups…

As with all our special events, the experience is augmented by families contributing by bringing food to share,  perhaps playing an instrument, and/or helping out on the day.  Please have a look on our “How can I help make Oktoberfest a lovely event for everyone?” sign-up sheet.

The menu will include Spanferkel (pig on a spit… yes, very German!) and fabulous home-made sausages from The Brathaus.  Traditional sauerkraut, potato salad, rolls, pretzels, German beer, veggie options, great German desserts, all feature on our delicious menu.

Questions can be emailed to our Oktoberfest Organising Team on  oktoberfest@spielwelt.org.au
