Oktoberfest - Saturday 7th October 2023
On Saturday 7th October 2023, the MK Biergarten and York House Centre are collaborating to celebrate the most famous of all German beer festivals.
In Munich, Oktoberfest is celebrated over two weeks and three weekends- with only the last weekend falling into October. We are hoping for more autumn sunshine and a lovely Biergarten atmosphere in front of York House and in the rear garden.
Between 2pm and 10pm, the York House Community Centre in Stony Stratford will play host to a traditional German Oktoberfest bar and oompah brass band style music & other performers throughout the day. (For full event listings and updates check out our Oktoberfest blog here)
In the main room of York House, staff in traditional Bavarian dress will be serving Paulaner and Hacker Oktoberfestbier. The brass band Der Huffunpuffers will entertain the thirsty crowds with Bavarian style oompah music.
Real ale, cider, wine and soft drinks will also be available.
Food will be available throughout the day by a the wonderful range of local businesses the area has to offer. Outside, food will be provided by the street food vendors. On the bar giant pretzels from Geoff's - Real Artisan Bread, based in Buckingham, will be on sale all day.
We will serve from pint glasses and German 1 litre Stein (or rather 'Mass') glasses.
Children are welcome until 7pm and their entry is free.
Make sure to save the date and dust off your Lederhosen!
