Edinburgh Oktoberfest

This iconic beer festival is returning to Edinburgh for another year of German beer, food and music. It’s a great way to experience Bavarian culture with Lederhosen, giant beer and "Schlager" music making for a great party.

The Bavarian celebration takes place in the colourful Oktoberfest tent in West Princes Street Gardens with a great line up of live music from bands who have travelled all the way from southern Germany. On the menu there'll be great German brewed beer and tasty German Schnitzel, all served up by the Edinburgh Oktoberfest team dressed in traditional Dirndl and Lederhosen. 

Entry on Wednesday is free, it's just £5 for entry on Thursday and Sunday and on Friday and Saturday there will be a £10 entrance fee. There are also a range of packages on offer which include food, beer and seat reservations from £10.50.

The tent is open from 4pm to 11pm on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and from 12.30pm to 7.30pm on Sunday. On Saturday there will be two sessions, the first from 11.30am to 4.30pm and the second from 5pm to 11.30pm.
