We’re turning the parklands into a traditional Craft Beer Hall, we’ll drink stein’s of beer and sip on schnapps, we’ll listen to the live Oompah bands, eat classic Bavarian food and dress up so we look the part. But wait, what does one even wear to Oktoberfest celebrations?! Well, we’re glad you asked, because here is all you need to know.

Nope, this isn’t a type of dance – it’s actually what the ladies wear for Oktoberfest celebrations! It’s a traditional Bavarian dress consisting of a bodice, a low-cut blouse, short puff sleeves, a full skirt and apron. Put your hair in braids and you’re good to go!

These used to be workwear across Europe but now, a Lederhosen is more of a folk costume associated with Bavaria. They’re basically leather shorts with H-shaped braces. These are usually worn with a classic white or checked shirt underneath.
