September 22, 2011, Manila - Bring on the beers, bratwursts and Bavarian spirit as the German Club Manila,  in cooperation with Sofitel Philippine Plaza, presents the 73rd Oktoberfest Manila on October 20 to 23, 2011! The only authentic Bavarian festival in the Philippines, Oktoberfest Manila 2011 is a celebration of traditions, entertainment, and Bavarian food and beverage spreads reminiscent of classic German folk festivals, coming to vibrant life at Sofitel’s Harbor Garden Tent. 

In celebration of the 201st  year of the Oktoberfest, the weekend’s program promises to be Manila’s most memorable yet as Sofitel’s breathtaking natural resort setting and amped-up offerings take the Oktoberfest to new heights. The Harbour Garden Tent will be decorated in the Bavarian colors, white and blue. Authentic Oktoberfest tables and benches guarantee a festive beer garden fair setting. Ladies in dirndls and gents in lederhosen strutting around the tent-turned-Oktoberfest village add to the heart-pumping Munich Oktoberfest vibe. Bavarian delights will make up the colorful culinary spread, such as fresh roasted pork knuckles, roasted calf, laugen rolls, grilled sausages and mouth-watering pastries, with refreshing, ice cold beer flowing freely for all to enjoy. The Bavarian Sound Express, well-known from previous Oktoberfests in Manila, will keep guests singing and dancing all night long. October the 23rd is Family Day, where inflatable bouncing castles, magicians, face painters and other fun games will regale young and old alike during Sunday Brunch. Oktoberfest Manila 2011 will take place from 6pm until midnight on October 20 to 22, and from 10:30am to 2pm on October 23.

Staying the night at Sofitel Philippine Plaza on these dates is highly recommended as special Oktoberfest rates are on offer. Guests can rest easy after the Oktoberfest festivities, after just a short elevator ride away.
