Hophaus’ annual Oktoberfest celebrations return this September-October with an extended program of events from a German degustation dinner with Weihenstephaner’s Head Brewer to a dedicated Games Day, beer trivia and of course the hugely popular Teckelrennen Annual Daschund Race, expanded and improved after a triumphant inaugural event last year.
Over 6.5 million people attend the world’s biggest celebration of beer and culture and once
again, Melbourne’s most savvy Germans and fest lovers will flock to the modern bier hall at Southgate for the 2016 Hoptoberfest program from Friday 16 September to Sunday 23
October, with the Teckelrennen Annual Dachshund Race setting a record number of short
sausage legs running on Saturday 24 September.
During the five-week program, Hoptoberfest expects to attract over 20,000 merrymakers
young and old, coming together to experience the magic of the world’s largest festival, with a wide range of events.
“We’ve worked hard to offer an extensive program of events for this year’s Hoptoberfest –
with something for everyone from the Ladies Love Bier luncheon, beer trivia nights, Family Days, Games Day, a special fest menu and more,” says Hophaus Manager Scott Highfield.
