Authentic German beer and food are integral parts of Oktoberfest, and the Cambridge version, which began last year, has them and so much more. Over a long weekend, from 31 August to 3 September, visitors can experience everything that makes a real Oktoberfest: live music, full decoration, a giant tent for 2,000 people on Jesus Green and, of course, the appropriate clothing, with waitresses and waiters dressed in dirndl and lederhosen.
The tent is filled with long tables and the delicious beer is specially made for the event. Organisers are certain you won’t want to sit for long. Indeed, while you’re singing along to the live music, you might want to stand on the benches – it’s allowed! Ticket prices vary, with package options also available.
