Oktoberfest is the world’s largest festival, and one of our favourites excuses for a party!
It takes place every September in Munich, Germany, and attracts millions of visitors from all over the world. It’s so popular, in fact, that people have started holding their own Oktoberfest parties.
Take a look at our best Oktoberfest party ideas below. Then bring out the beer, roll out the oompa band and let the good times begin!
Top ideas for an Oktoberfest party
Hang some novelty decorations
Our Oktoberfest party ideas start with decorations.
Don’t worry about your Oktoberfest decorations being too authentic though – a little tongue in cheek won’t be out of place at an Oktoberfest party. We love this Bratwurst bunting and giant pretzel balloon!
Speaking of tongue in cheek, getting into the spirit of Oktoberfest with some novelty fancy dress is also essential.
Take a look at our Oktoberfest fancy dress for inspiration – you could go all out with some traditional lederhosen or a dirndl dress, or a bit more low-key with some funny accessories. It’s up to you!
We love these funny pretzel glasses – almost as much as we love Oktoberfest parties!
Bring out the beer!
Our next Oktoberfest idea is definitely the most important one – beer!
At Oktoberfest it’s served in traditional glass steins that hold a litre of beer – why not get some plastic ones for your Oktoberfest celebration?
Now the beer’s sorted, it’s time to think about your Oktoberfest party food.
Salted pretzels are traditional Oktoberfest fare – and perfect for soaking up the beer. You can pick them up in the bakery section at most supermarkets; serve each one on a blue and white Oktoberfest napkin for a traditional German look!
Set up an Oktoberfest photo booth
Once your Oktoberfest party’s in full swing, it’s time to grab your camera and get some snaps!
We love these Oktoberfest photo booth props – hand them out to your guests and take some funny photos of the party. You could even set up a photo booth in the corner of your party venue.
