Announcing the Adelaide Hills Oktoberfest!

Get your Dirndls's & Lederhosen ready, Prancing Pony Brewery presents the Inaugural Adelaide Hills Oktoberfest!

Prancing Pony Brewery are excited to announce the launch of the Inaugural Adelaide Hills Oktoberfest at the Newenham in the Adelaide Hills on Saturday, 27th of October 2018. 

This festival will deliver a traditional and authentic German Cultural Oktoberfest; and what better place to do it than in the Adelaide Hills. It is ideally suited to hold a festival to celebrate all things German; after all, it is home of South Australian German settlement in 1845. The German settlers chose these rolling green hills to live, work & play - which is still evident today. 

The Inaugural festival will be a family friendly affair with music, traditional dancing, beer and of course plenty of German style food. Prancing Pony will be brewing two traditional German style beers, which will be served in 1 litre steins. 
Prancing Pony have partnered with German dancers, brass bands and of course producers of fine German style breads, smallgoods and other delicious food. 


Prancing Pony are looking forward to creating a family friendly atmosphere where you can enjoy the day's onstage entertainment, food & relax on the grass. As the afternoon progresses, so will the festival with live music and German Schuhplattler (German slap dancing), more food and of course more Oktoberfest beer. 

For beer enthusiasts, Prancing Pony Brewery will teach you everything you have ever wanted to know about traditional German brewing in a Beer Masterclass. 


Guests will enjoy a range of games to participate in during the day including Bretzel eating, hammer throwing and potato sack racing. There will be however, two main competitions that guests can participate in:
