Redcliffe Prepares for Two-Day Extravaganza as Oktoberfest Returns

Oktoberfest Redcliffe

Anticipation is building for the much-awaited return of Redcliffe’s Oktoberfest and this year, it’ll be twice as fun – two whole days, promising even more German beer, wine, food, games, and entertainment to delight the senses!



The festival, organised by Beam Entertainment, will take place at the Webb Hall at Redcliffe Showgrounds. On Friday, 29 September 2023, the revelry will kick off at 3:30 p.m. and continue until 10:00 p.m. The following day, the fun will resume at 11:00 a.m. and go on until 10:00 p.m. However, it’s important to note that this is an 18+ event, ensuring that attendees can fully indulge in the spirits of the occasion.

Event organiser Andy Mehringer is pulling out all the stops to ensure that patrons are fully immersed in the festive atmosphere filled with imported German beers, schnapps, wine, and food.

Attendees can look forward to a number of traditional games that will add an extra layer of fun to the festivities. Schnitzel eating contests, beer stein sculling, and the coveted titles of Miss and Mr Oktoberfest await the enthusiastic participants.

For those vying for the titles, the road to victory involves a parade in front of the entire hall, where attendees have the chance to cast their votes for the best-dressed contestants.

To add an air of authenticity to the event, Moreton Bay City Council Mayor Peter Flannery will grace the occasion with the traditional tapping of the first beer barrel. It’s a moment that not only signifies the commencement of the festivities but also pays homage to the centuries-old customs of the original Oktoberfest.
