Germany’s largest festival tradition will be making its way to Leeds city centre for the first time this October.

Oktoberfest will offer thousands of revellers the chance to enjoy four days of Bavarian food, bier and music.

The festival will be held at The Tetley, in a 2,000 capacity German big top tent, which will be transformed into a traditional Oktoberfest arena - hosting various bars, traditional food stalls and a stage.

Matt Long, event organiser, said, “Although the city already has lots of existing Oktoberfest celebrations we felt that Leeds was missing a large scale version of the event to really give people a full, authentic Oktoberfest experience. The Tetley site also provides us with a perfect spot to host it, given its long brewery history and with it being in the heart of the city centre.

“We’re very excited to be celebrating a real taste of traditional German food, drink and music this October and we’re already looking forward to seeing 2,000 people in our big top tent having a great time.”

Visitors will be able to enjoy a range of traditional German beer - including Erdinger and a haus bier served in exclusively-branded Oktoberfest Leeds steins - German wine and soft drinks as well as traditional Bavarian cuisine such as Bratwurst, Brezel, Schnitzel and Hendl and some vegetarian options.
