Dust off your lederhosen or dirndl — Oktoberfest is returning to the Brisbane Showgrounds in 2022.

Extending over two weekends, Australia's largest German culture festival will span traditional live music tents, Munich-style biergartens and carnival rides, all between Friday, October 7–Sunday, October 9 and Friday, October 14–Sunday, October 16. An all-day lineup of live music — including an Oompah band, yodelling and dance — will keep visitors entertained while they eat, drink and celebrate all things Bavaria.

A handful of stalls peddling Christmas merch, traditional clothing and toys will also be on-site. There'll be plenty of food stalls offering hearty German cuisine when hunger strikes, including gravy-doused schnitties, candied apples, pork knuckle with sauerkraut and pretzels.

And, when it comes to beer, the festival likes to keep things traditional: all beer served on-site has been brewed specifically for the event, following the Bavarian Purity Law, and all brews are served in steins. Not a big beer-lover? There'll be classic German wines and non-alcoholic drinks available, too.

Because organisers are expecting crowds, this year's Friday sessions will kick off at 12pm for the first time — giving you an excuse to ditch work early.

And, on Sundays, there'll be $25 tickets that include unlimited free rides. Perhaps don't take advantage of that after a few steins, though.
