The 4th Leeds Oktoberfest – Now Extended to Two Week-ends

Oktoberfest 10 – 12 October is approaching a sell-out at the time of writing…..

so in order to meet demand, fans of German beers, bratwurst and brezeln will be happy to know that there’s a second Oktoberfest week-end on 18 and 19 October.

Leeds South Bank is set to welcome 14,000 visitors at Temple Arches, which is a new space in which to host the big top tent, decorated Oktober-style.  

The festival originated in 1811 in Munich, and since its 2016 debut in Leeds, has more than doubled in size, so that it had to relocate to the South Bank Depot on Globe Street.

Ayinger Brewery are the festival’s brewery partners, hailing from the Munich area and offering a multi-award winning Bavarian beer.  For those who prefer options, there’ll be wine, prosecco and soft drinks.

Lederhosen-clad Bavarian Strollers are Oktoberfest’s regular in-house band who entertain with singalong hits and Bavarian classics.

The festival’s team in Leeds said:

“One of our favourite times of year.  We can’t wait to host two epic Oktoberfest
weekends for all our guests here in Leeds. We’re super-excited to reveal our new
venue, which we will be transforming into the perfect backdrop for the biggest and
best beer-drinking, bratwurst eating party in the North of England.”

Oktoberfest tickets are available from
Thursday 10th October
Friday 11th October
Saturday 12th October
Friday 18th October
Saturday 19th October
