Hampshire’s OktoberFest is a fantastic family festival attracting over 8000 visitors annually.

Originating from Munich in Germany the festival is a celebration of fine food, fine beer and fine times. A huge variety of real ale from across the region will be available, with over 220 different beers, craft ales and ciders, and new for this year - two gin bars offering some of the finest tipples and tonics to whet your appetite. Quite simply - this is an event not to be missed!
