A bit of Oktoberfest information:

The Wollongong Oktoberfest is an annual event run by volunteers to promote German Culture throughout the Illawarra. This year will be our 29th consecutive Oktoberfest and is the largest Regional Oktoberfest in Australia.

There will be German Dance Groups on Saturday and Sunday, and Theatrix Performing Arts on Sunday.

The Masters of Oompah will be providing authentic German entertainment throughout the event.

There will be plenty of competitions, including: Sausage eating, Strong Man, Strong Woman, Nail Hammer and German Beard. Start growing that beard now!
Come and watch or take part in the competitions. Free to enter and great prizes.

Entertainment in the Big Tent starts on Friday and continues throughout the weekend.

Epic Gaming Australia will be present throughout the weekend with Laser Skirmish. How much fun can it be to battle in lederhosen and dirndls?

On family day (Sunday) there will be rides, a face painter, and a balloon animal blower.

The full entertainment program will be published in September.

We hope to see you at our 29th Oktoberfest in 2018!
