Kicking off with a theatrical tapping of the keg by the festival’s official Bürgermeister, each four-and-a-half-hour event boasts a fully immersive atmosphere complete with medieval tomfoolery, swashbuckling swordplay by Academie Duello, live Bavarian brass oompah and favourite party hits by Vancouver’s “Oktoberators” on the central stage and the return of internationally renowned DJ Erick Decks from Frankfurt, Germany.

Since it’s gauche to drink from just any ol’ glass during Oktoberfest, guests sip European beers in authentic ceramic Bierkrug (steins) and specialty German wines while making new friends at communal long tables. Hit the dance floor, or try the giant Jenga or darts in the games room, and by all means get in on traditional Oktoberfest delicacies such as Spätzle, Brezen, Bratwürst, Schnitzel and Sauerkraut in the open-air Marktplatz (marketplace).
