If you want an authentic Oktoberfest experience complete with live music, entertainment, games, traditional German food and real Bavarian brew but can’t make it to Munich, then you should plan to be in the Swan Valley this October.
Elmar’s in the Valley is once again hosting their highly anticipated Oktoberfest and have promised that this year’s spectacle will be bigger and better than ever. Saturday 14th and 21st October will be 18+ events with a family-friendly day for all ages to be held on Sunday 22nd October.
Central to this celebration of all things German will be Elmar’s trademark Marzen Bier, which was brewed in strict accordance with the centuries-old Bavarian Beer Purity Laws and which has been conditioning since March so that it peaks at the perfect time for consumption at the Oktoberfest.
The festival was the brainchild of Elmar and Anette Dieren, who migrated to Perth from Germany in 1987 bringing with them a deep passion and a wealth of experience for fine food and smallgoods production. Retailers by background, they opened up Elmar’s in the Valley in 2005 and it quickly gained a loyal following for its delicious traditional German food, tasty craft beer and relaxed family entertainment in beautiful surroundings.
Previous Oktoberfests at Elmar’s in the Valley have sold out quickly, with a daily crowd of 2 000 enjoying the festival of fun in the award-winning brewery’s two-acre biergarten. This year, visitors are encouraged to dust off their dirndls and lederhosen and gear up for an even bigger Bavarian blast which will include more bars and more entertainment such as stein holding and Bratwurst eating competitions and tugs-o-war.
Foods to try will include Elmar’s famous Schweinshaxe (pickled and roasted pork shank), Bratwurst sausage barbequed on a traditional cast iron frying pan and artisan smallgoods, with a host of other treats on offer to cater for all tastes.
Getting there is easy, with free onsite parking and regular shuttle buses from the Guildford Train Station and the Ellenbrook shops. Staying there is even easier and if you take advantage of the special discount accommodation deal at Big 4 Discovery Park - Perth Vineyards, you won’t miss a minute of the fun.
Oktoberfest at Elmar’s in the Valley offers all the traditional delights of an authentic Bavarian experience - yet it’s only a stone’s throw from Perth.
