Original Oktoberfest for the 25th Year

Oktoberfest may have its roots in Munich but you don’t have to go to Germany to enjoy this annual celebration. Hilton Colombo will again be organizing the Oktoberfest from November, 9 to 18, which will be held for the 25th consecutive year. It is the most popular event patronized by local and expatriate communities.

Oktoberfest 2017 takes the form of a typical German festival serving special brews as well as authentic German staples such as, bratwurst, schnitzels and sauerkraut that go along with the traditional Oktoberfest celebrations together with entertainment provided by a 26 member Bavarian band and traditional service girls from Munich to create the real Oktoberfest atmosphere. Popular activities such as, the Chicken Dance, Power Hammer, Brew competitions and daily raffles will be staged throughout the 10 days of celebrations.

The event will be held at the Sports Centre Arena under a huge marquee which can accommodate up to 800 guests. 100% homemade German sausages to original Bavarian recipes are being churned out by Sous Chef Gerard Jansen who has been trained by a German Master Butcher.

As Jansen celebrates 25 years of Oktoberfest, he vouches to deliver authentic Bavarian specialties from starters to breads to appetizers and salads, mains and delectable desserts.
