Oktoberfest Comes to Scotland

Oktoberfest, the iconic beer festival, is coming to Scotland for the first time this October. The festival will take place at Princes Street, Gardens in Edinburgh and in Glasgow at Glasgow Green, later on in the month. Carsten Raun, Director of the London Oktoberfest, comments, “We want to bring the best in German culture to Scotland. We started our London event in 2011 and it was so much fun. We had 16000 people in London and we thought it was time to move north.
“We decided to bring it to Edinburgh and Glasgow because they are both national cities and we heard they both like to party.” The Octoberfest will showcase authentic German beers, food and music and the tents will be decorated in traditional German style with waiters and waitresses delivering their stein of beer dressed in traditional Dirndl and Lederhosen. The beer will also be freshly delivered to each event direct from Germany ensuring the drinks are as true to the original festival as possible. An entrance ticket on Thursday, Friday and Sunday costs £5 and Saturday £10.
