Oktoberfest Vietnam 2015 kicks off at Windsor Plaza

Taking its roots from the original Oktoberfest held in the Bavarian city of Munich (Germany), Oktoberfest Vietnam celebrates the introduction of German culture and partnership to Vietnam.

Oktoberfest Vietnam is continuing on October 14 to 17, 2015 at Windsor Plaza Hotel at 18 An Duong Vuong street, District 5, Ho Chi Minh City. 

This annual event recreates the authentic atmosphere found in the massive beer halls of the original Oktoberfest, complete with savory German cuisine, premium imported German beer, and traditional Bavarian music.

New to Oktoberfest Vietnam, the organisers are proud to welcome An Ton show band, a traditional Oktoberfest band which has played concerts worldwide. From beer tents to banquet halls, An Ton show band is famous for their beer-toasting medleys.

Everyone from the German, Vietnamese and international communities are invited to witness and enjoy the festivities from the rituals of opening a barrel of beer to wearing traditional costumes, dancing to foot-stomping music, all-you-can-eat authentic German cuisine such as sausages, sauerkraut, sauerbraten and pretzels, overflowing beer, exciting games, prizes, and much more.

Guests are presented with a collectible Oktoberfest Vietnam beer stein and have the chance to win exciting prizes from the nightly lucky draws.

Oktoberfest is one of the most famous and biggest festivals in the world, tracing its roots from 19th century Bavarian, Germany. In Vietnam, the Windsor Plaza Hotel and the German Business Association have been hosting the event since 2005. Oktoberfest Vietnam was recognised by Reuters as one of the Top 10 Oktoberfest celebrations outside Germany, and was also featured in the Chicago Tribune.
