Dust off your Lederhosen and get in your Dirndl! It’s Oktoberfest!

The oldest Oktoberfest in Melbourne is getting bigger and better! To celebrate the 50th birthday of Hofbräuhaus Melbourne we will throw the biggest Oktoberfest ever in Market Lane – in the heart of Chinatown.

Release your inner Bavarian and join the original Bavarian party in Melbourne!

Oktoberfest period: 22nd September until 27th October, what? Ja, because life is too short to drink bad Bier! -no entrance fee-

Join our BIG OPENING PARTY on 22nd September and celebrate the Oktoberfest with us for more than 4 weeks!

  • Big Steins of best imported Bavarian Bier
  • Bavarian live entertainment all day long 
  • Bavarian competitions (Stein carrying, Stein Holding and more!)
  • Special Bavarian feast – perfect for your crew to share and only available until October 27 
  • Special Oktoberfest Bier

Kicking off with a BANG our Opening Party will run from noon in the restaurant with the traditional keg tapping and Stein carrying competition. Bands will play all day and after 5pm the party continues up in the Bier Hall.
So get the crew together or come down alone just as long as you’re here. It will be an awesome first day to a great month to come full of gorgeous food and Big BIG BIERS!!
