Oktoberfest 2017

The picturesque seaside town of Emu Park will come alive on Saturday, 4th November. The Emu Park Lions Club is busy gearing up for another fantastic day where more than 3,000 locals and visitors will descend on Emu Park’s Bell Park.

The day will resonate to the music of the Kalendar Band and Heidi the yodeler entertaining patrons with OOM PAH PAH and a floor show of traditional Bavarian folk dancing, cowbells, Swiss Alp horn, yodeling and audience participation. Patrons are serenaded with music ranging from beautiful German ballads to raunchy German beer drinking songs with as much knee slapping, toe tapping, slap dancing, hat dancing and chicken dancing as anyone could handle. Later in the day expect the dance to get more frenetic as the band rocks on right up to closing time.

Traditional German fare will be on offer as will a range of local Aussie foods and imported beers. Beer steins and lots more will be available from the Stein Stall.

PLEASE NOTE:-

Licensing laws prohibit alcohol from being brought in or taken out of the event. Because of this restriction only sealed bottles of water can be brought through the gate. Water will be available to replace any open bottles which need to be emptied before entry or you can simply bring along your favourite water container and fill it. Patrons are advised to organize transport and accommodation beforehand to avoid drinking and driving. No dogs or eskies are allowed.
