Oktoberfest coming to country close to you

One no longer needs to go all the way to Munich to experience Oktoberfest! Macau, the entertainment capital of Asia ushers in the seventh Oktoberfest between October 15 and 25, 2015. You can experience Munich's famed festival in the truest sense at MGM Macau
This 12-day beer fest captures the essence of Bavarian festivities through authentic German beer, live entertainment and a party atmosphere. Furnished with classic long wooden tables and benches under a huge tent, the venue comes alive every day from 6pm till midnight, with the clinking of beer mugs and the sounds of traditional accordion and oompah music.

Ceiling wreaths and buntings, taps flowing with Spaten beer, carnival game booths, folk dancing and sing-along are all part of the fun. You can enjoy the rhythmic Bavarian whip-cracking, the playing of traditional Alpenhorn, and dance to the Högl Fun Band, flown in all the way from Germany. 
Over the years, Macau Oktoberfest has already received more than 77,000 guests and has served 74,166 liters of beer, 15,895 kilograms of pork knuckles, 6,996 roasted chickens and 9,485 pieces of homemade pretzels!

Beer is the essence of the Oktoberfest, and MGM Macau has specially brought one of only six brews that is regarded as the genuine Oktoberfest beer – the Spaten from Munich. First served at 1872’s Oktoberfest, the beer features a rich, textured palate with an underlying sweetness that is true to tradition. Besides Spaten, this year’s Oktoberfest also features Franziskaner Non-alcoholic Beer, Franziskaner Wheat Beer and Fruit Flavor Beer. 

For 12 knee-slapping days, guests can feast on bratwurst sausages, roasted free range chicken, roasted pork knuckles and other German specialties while enjoying a stein or two of the beer.

Oktoberfest admission tickets and food and beverage coupons are available for sale from September 14 to October 25, 2015.  Entrance fee is MOP 130 per person, inclusive of one drink. 
Time:               1pm – 8pm Daily
