David McElherron, Managing Director at Noreast Beers, the NI agent for Erdinger said:

“Erdinger Weissbier has been brewed in the town of Erding in Bavaria for 130 years.

Erdinger is enjoyed all over the world and what better way to enjoy this typical Bavarian speciality than at an authentic Bavarian-style Oktoberfest event in the heart of Belfast!

Erdinger has been successfully involved in the fantastic Dublin Oktoberfest and we can’t wait to bring this exciting event to the great city of Belfast in 2017.

Dress up, sing out and practice the only German word you’ll need – PROST!”

Classic German Cuisine

A variety of Oktoberfest favourites are on the menu with hot glühwein, snitzels, fresh-baked pretzels and German Bratwursts from an authentic swing grill – all adding to the unique Oktoberfest Custom House Square experience.

The Best Local Acts & Oompagh Band Every Night!

Of course, it wouldn’t be Oktoberfest without the five-piece Bavarian Oompah house band ‘Zwei Bier!’.

Set to make punters feel like they’re in the middle of a Munich beer hall, they will pump out ‘oompahfied’ favourites on the brass and accordion.

This runs alongside a full schedule of entertainment including local Belfast talent Discobeard, Rab McCullough and more!

Angela Vaupel-Schwittay, Honorary Consul for Germany in Northern Ireland said:

“I am very excited to see this old German tradition coming to Belfast.

Whether you like Bavarian beer and Bratwurst or not, surely everyone enjoys a little bit of Oompah and Lederhosen for the craic?

The Oktoberfest will be a great addition to the city events calendar and might even become a local tradition too!”

Not Into Beer?

For those who prefer a long drink or want to change it up from the steins, both Jägermeister & Belfast’s own Jawbox Gin will host a pop up bar offering their favourites serves too. Wine & cider will also be available.
