Every October, The Garage brings a special part of Munich back to the East Midlands for our annual Oktoberfest beer festival.

With authentic and official Oktoberfest beer, authentic German music by one of the UK’s top Oompah bands, and excellent street food, expect to be immursed into a part of one of the best atmospheres of any venue in the England.


Flown in from Munich, Oktoberfest at The Garage secures one of the six licensed beers from the official Oktoberfest in Munich.

Ladies and Gentlemen, please rise for the Paulaner Oktoberfestbier.

This pilsner styled lager is made using the glacial waters found underneath Munich and makes up what is one of only six authorised beers sold at the official Oktoberfest in Germany. At 6% it is sure to get you in the stein clinking, bench swaying and song singing spirit that will make this night an unforgettable one for you and your friends.

We’ll also be showcasing the number one weissbier in Germany and one of the world’s favourites, enjoy the wonderful Paulaner Weissbier. At the first mouthful this weissbier classic has a mild aroma of banana. Finer palates detect a trace of mango and pineapple and the balance between sweet and bitter.  

 And keeping up our support for local breweries, we’ll also have Thornbridge’s Lukas available. This crisp, traditional styled helles lager is modest in strength at 4.2%, but still provides a great way of joining in with the party.


Truly one of the top Oompah Bands in the entire UK, this band of Bavarian brothers will be treating you to traditional German music as well as sing-along classics and games to play, keeping you entertained well into the night.

With their unmistakable lederhosens, dirndls and questionably familiar eagles, the Oompah Band are regulars at some of the UK’s top venues, like the Alexandra Palace, London.


Working with some of the very best in the Street Food scene, endulge in a night of great drinks, live music and of course wonderful sweet and savoury food at Oktoberfest Nottingham.

Alongside award-winning chefs and menus, join us during our evening sessions, or get comfortable at our two family Saturday afternoon sessions to enjoy traditional German cuisine.


Although our Evening Sessions are 18+,  each year we open to people of all ages at Family Oktoberfest, where you can head down to grab yourself a stein of official Paulaner Oktoberfest beer, some wonderful food cooked by our festival chefs, live music and free face painting for children (and adults!)
