Oktoberfest Brisbane Opening Ceremony

The second Friday of October each year marks the beginning of Oktoberfest Brisbane and of course ‘Anzapfen’ – a word the Germans created for tapping into the first keg of this iconic celebration! What began in Munich as a wedding celebration over 100 years ago, has quickly become one of the world’s best known and celebrated festivals, attracting 450 million people to view Munich’s Lord Mayor tapping the first keg of beer and offering the first Stein to the Head of State, announcing “O’zapft is” – “it’s tapped”.

Join a raft of VIP’s for this ceremonious event as Brisbane’s Lord Mayor Graham
Quirk kicks off the two-week Oktoberfest Brisbane celebration! We have been privileged to have Lord Mayor Graham Quirk tap the first keg in 2008 and look forward to welcoming him back again this year to kick off Oktoberfest Brisbane for the 10th time in 2017!
