Shropshire Oktoberfest is set to take over Shrewsbury’s Quarry Park this October for two days of beers, live entertainment, street food and lederhosen.
With summer coming to a close, it’s time to start planning for the next season’s events. After a year break due to the pandemic, Shropshire Oktoberfest is heading back to Shrewsbury Quarry, and it’s looking bigger and better than ever before.
Taking place on Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd of October, the traditional German festival will be offering delicious street food alongside live entertainment, all of which can be enjoyed with a selection of 150 ales, all available from independent brewers from across the region.
And if beer isn’t your thing, don’t worry, The Buttermarket will be shaking things up with a rum shack, and Hencote will be serving its signature wines. Plus, The Shropshire Distillery will be hosting gin tasting sessions on both days.
As well as live music from Untamed Shrew, The Follicles, Five O’clock Hero, and lederhosen wearing, Oktoberfest favourite – Vorsprung Durch Oompah, ticket holders will also be able to enjoy live comedy in the Comedy Den, with a line-up including Eddy Brimson, Susan Murray, and Vladimir McTavish.
If all this wasn’t enough, the festival will also have a silent disco, plus a chance to showcase your vocals at the Volvo Shrewsbury’s Carpool Karaoke tipi. And for those who want to add a dash of luxury to their festival experience, VIP tickets are available for both days.
Speaking ahead of the event, Shropshire Festival’s Director of Fun, Beth Heath, said: “Judging by our ticket sales, the party of the year has obviously been missed! It will be great to return to the Quarry with our fourth Oktoberfest event.
“There is so much we have missed out on over the last 18 months, so we have decided that on the Saturday we will have 45 minutes of fun dedicated to every missed celebration.”
