HOPTOBERFEST

Saturday 20th September – Sunday 5th October

Melbourne LOVES a festival and thrives with a strong German culture! Accordingly, Hophaus will be hosting its inaugural ‘Hoptoberfest’ at Southbank, Melbourne.

Whilst the Festival originated in Munich to celebrate a royal wedding in October 1810, in modern times the Festival runs for 16 days leading up to the first Sunday in October.

Hence, this year’s Melbourne Oktoberfest, ‘Hoptoberfest’ begins on Saturday September 20!

As we proudly show off our contemporary recreation of the great Bavarian Bier Halls we will be going all-out to indulge you with Bavarian culture through food, entertainment and most importantly BIER (with the best views of the Yarra)!

Come and join us for our ‘Hoptoberfest’ events:
