Macau, known as the entertainment capital of Asia ushers in the seventh Oktoberfest between October 15- 25, 2015. Guests can experience Munich’s famed festival in the truest sense at The Vista II of MGM Macau. The fest aims to encourage residents and visitors to indulge in the revelry that brings everyone together, thus boosting community tourism and smart tourism development.
This 12-day beerfest 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 6 pm till midnight, with the clinking of beer mugs and the sounds of traditional accordion. Ceiling wreaths and buntings, taps flowing with Spaten beer, carnival game booths, folk dancing and sing-alongs are all part of the fun. Featuring beer maids in dirndls, Macau Oktoberfest offers experiences that reflect exactly what you would find in Munich.
Over the years, Macau Oktoberfest has already received more than 77,000 guests and has served 74,166 liters of beer, 15,895 kg 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 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.
