Doncaster’s first Oktoberfest promises two days of beer, stomping and singing

Doncaster’s Sir Nigel Gresley Square is set to host a two-day Oktoberfest German Beer Festival in a specialist 50m marquee between October 12-13 2018 with three sessions per day for the duration.

Oktoberfest Doncaster is inviting people to “celebrate the most important date on Germany’s cultural calendar for a huge weekend of traditional Bavarian entertainment, food and drink.” It will be the first time and Oktoberfest event has been held in Doncaster.

The event will take place inside one of Europe’s largest touring beer tents and the Bavarian style festival will showcase some of the best and authentic oompah bands from around the world across three sessions.

There will also be a large selection of traditional German foods plus those all important steins.

30,000 litres of beer are expected to be served over the event’s two day duration. The event is open to over 18s only.

The original Oktoberfest is held annually in Munich, running from 16-18 days and attracts more than six million people every year.

“Top up your stein and step inside the our huge bier tent and prepare to be entertained Bavarian style. From traditional folk to ‘Oompop’ expect foot stomping, table bashing and hearty singing galore. Grab some traditional German grub from the outdoor food court as you raise your steins at Oktoberfest Doncaster!” say the organisers.
