Raise a glass once more when Oktoberfest returns in 2023. The details below are for the 2022 event, but we’ll update them once the park release details for this year’s event.
Oktoberfest returns this September, as the park brings a family-friendly take on the traditional German festival, featuring special entertainment as well as tasty food and drink.
During the event, the event arena on the front lawns and the Mutiny Bay Courtyard are transformed into a veritable Bavarian playground, with everything you could need to celebrate Oktoberfest in the heart of the Staffordshire Moorlands.
Starting at 1pm each day, the front lawns come alive with a range of singers and characters performing on the main stage into the evening, including some favourites from across the resort.
Of course no Oktoberfest would be complete without a bit of oompah and throughout the event the park will be home to Oomparty Band, who have joined the event for 2022 with a combo of traditional German music and modern favourites.
Over at the Courtyard in Mutiny Bay, a more laid-back atmosphere is available over at the new Bierkellar, where guests can sample authentic German beers while enjoying German songs with Landlady Fraulin Helga.
Food and Drink
Around the Bavarian entertainment area you will find a selection of stalls, bring German treats to the park alongside a range of other international cuisine. Including:
- Spanferkel – hog roast sandwiches, served with apple sauce and stuffing
- Schwenk Grill – traditional wursts and pretzels
- Geladene Pommes – loaded fries inspired by world cuisines and pizza.
- Lebukchen – traditional desserts and hot chocolate
All your favourite rides will be available for late riding until 7pm most Friday and Saturday evenings.
