5th Oktoberfest Lanzarote

23. – 26.10.2014

Welcome!

Now then fun lovers, it´s time again for another celebration of the world famous Munich Festival under the Lanzarote sun.

Fresh from the fantastic success of this year’s Lanzarote Summer Music Festival, the PAR events team have come together for the 5th edition of the Oktoberfest to be held in la Plaza de las Naciones, Los Pocillos, Puerto del Carmen, working with Caritas (homeless organisation), to raise both funds and awareness. The festivities keep getting bigger and better and will be held over 4 days this year, with an expected 6,000 visitors, packed full of live music, games and entertainment. There is a fantastic choice of traditional food and plenty to drink with the bars serving up local beers, wines, spirits mojitos and smoothies as well as the very tasty Paulaner “weissbier”, (wheat beer), “Jagermeister” and “Obstler” from the Beer Keller.

Not forgetting the activity area for the kids, there is something for everyone, so come along and join us in the big tent and sway along to the Schlager music. Doors opening at 2pm till late, except Sunday, with a 10am start for the customary white sausage and beer brunch.

The Bavarian Oktoberfest festival is held annually in Munich, running over a period of up to eighteen days from late September to the first weekend in October. It is one of the most famous events in Germany and is the world‘s largest fair, with more than 5 million people attending every year and is now celebrated in cities across the world. The Oktoberfest is an important part of Bavarian culture, with its history dating back to the marriage of Crown Prince Ludwig, (later to become King Ludwig I), to Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen on 12th October 1810. The citizens of Munich were invited to attend the festivities held on the fields in front of the city gates named Theresienwiese (“Theresa‘s fields”) in honor of the Crown Princess ever since, although the locals have since abbreviated the name simply to the “Wies’n”. Royal horse races marked the close of the event that was celebrated as a festival for the whole of Bavaria. The decision to repeat the horse races in the subsequent year gave rise to the tradition of the ‘Oktoberfest’.

Environment & New Presentation

Due to the increasing amount of rubbish produced, especially during large scale outdoor events, and our commitment to the environment, we have been obliged to upgrade the way we work; starting with Oktoberfest Lanzarote 2014. It is also prohibited to have any glass at these public outdoor activities; therefore we will be introducing our own high quality cups and mugs which are: MULTI-USE, WASHABLE & RECYCLABLE.
