Oktoberfest Parklands will transform Patrick White Lawns by Lake Burley Griffin into a lakeside celebration of the world’s largest beer and food festival, with a Craft Beer Hall, Bavarian Food Trucks, Oompah bands, DJs, traditional dancers, side show alley and a whole host of other entertainment to blow dein mind!




Germans are known for their amazing food. Explore our food truck village where you’ll find mouth-watering German delights to feast upon including Schweinshaxe (pork knuckle), Bratwurst, Schnitzel, Pretzels, Strudel and of course some Aussie favourites too!


One of the most important (and traditional) attractions of Oktoberfest Parklands is the liquid gold. Embracing the spirit of Munich, we’re bringing the beer hall experience direct to Canberra. From the hand-selected range of the very best German (and a few non-German) beers to the brass and Oompah and the long tables, the friendships and festivities, it’s time to embrace your inner-German!


It wouldn’t be Oktoberfest without German music, and Oompah bands are the soundtrack to your Oktoberfest experience! These big brass bands are creative, interactive and energetic. Even without speaking German you’ll feel like you know the words and find yourself singing along to traditional Oktoberfest anthems like Ein Prosit and modern classics like I Love Rock ‘n Roll.


Experience Oktoberfest like never before in the silent disco, featuring the very best DJs in the area. Expect the perfect selection of the DJs playing modern and classic hits to complement our German bands and performers!



There are some things in life where ze Deutsche are just one step ahead! With many Oktoberfest traditions to choose from, Oktoberfest Parklands will challenge your inner- Germanophile with great competitions and prizes.



Will your next selfie feature our stealth mode Oktoberfest photo bomber? Or will you run into our much less stealthy acrobats, roving musicians, fire breathers and more as they roam the parks in search of mischief!


They’re strong, fun & friendly and will make your day a breeze with access to our Beer Hall & Food Truck Village. They can reserve you a table, take your orders and deliver your steins and food right to you and your friends.
