You can experience a little bit of Germany in Portsmouth as Oktoberfest is set to come to the town for the second time.
For those who don’t know, Oktoberfest is a traditional event which takes place in the country each October.
It is hugely popular and has spread across the world. The events specialise in authentic Bavarian beer and food.
Visitors to Oktoberfest will find a giant outdoors bier tent, said to be one of the biggest in europe, where they can enjoy a two-pint beer from a traditional Oktoberfest stein.
Where is it?
Portsmouth is taking place within the Guildhall Square in a huge Oktoberfest tent between Friday October 6th and Saturday, October 7th.
The festival will be open at the following times:
- Friday – 6pm to 11pm
- Saturday – 12pm - 5pm
- Saturday - 6pm - 11pm
To get into the party spirit there will be live music performances from traditional oompah Bands, while all staff will be dressed in traditional Bavarian costume - lederhosen for men and dirndl for women.
