Excitement builds for Oktoberfest 2017

Everyone is invited to join the celebration of food, beer and music at this year’s Oktoberfest in Kings Hall, Belfast.

The German-inspired beer festival will be held every Friday and Saturday over four weekends from 29th of September – 21th October.

Oktoberfest Belfast will be the last major event to happen at the Kings Hall.

In 2008 and 2009 Belfast gave host to a small imitation of the Munich festival and after four years in the waiting The Merry Monk Tavern are bringing the celebrations to Northern Ireland.



The events in 2008 and 2009 were a great success with sell-out crowds who enjoyed the great atmosphere presented by a well balanced mix of traditional ‘oom pah pah’ band and local entertainment. The Oktoberfest returned in 2013 and has been held at The Kings Hall, Belfast ever since.

The event continues to get bigger and bigger each year with more music, more food, and of course more beer. Backed by one of the biggest breweries in Germany, Paulaner, this year’s Oktoberfest Belfast 2017 is set to be a huge hit with people in Northern Ireland.

With 35,000 litres of beer ordered from Germany’s beer-making capital, it really is a fantastic event that brings a small slice of the German festival to Northern Ireland’s capital city.

The Munich Oktoberfest has been running since 1810 and now hosts 6 million people each year that come together to celebrate everything German. It creates an atmosphere like no other and is one of the world’s biggest events.



After the success of the German beer tent at the Christmas market in Belfast, it’s no secret that the people of Northern Ireland love good quality German beer.

Oktoberfest 2017 in Belfast offers the full German experience with quality beer, music, food and Heidi girls. It will be a great way to soak up the atmosphere of the great Munich festival without making the 1,000 mile trek to Germany.

Oktoberfest 2017 will have a full range of beers to meet your palate, including Paulaner Oktoberfest Lager, which is only brewed for the Munich Beer Festival. All the food and beer will be delicious and served by friendly staff in traditional Bavarian costumes. As is tradition in Bavaria the beer will be served in 1 litre glasses (steins).
