 It's time to strap on the Lederhosen again with Toowoomba's greatest Oktoberfest celebrations to be held at The Spotted Cow Hotel this Saturday 11th October.

Patrons will again don traditional dress and give their arms a workout lumbering the traditional Oktoberfest Steins. 


“The day means allot to many of our Patrons who earmark this time of the year to reunite with old mates and that coming together really adds to celebrations,” Spotted Cow Manager Phillip Coorey said.

Mr Coorey also adds that the age gap of celebrants is getting wider each year from the 18 year old first timer’s right through to the seniors.

"We’ve worked hard on creating a real Oktoberfest tradition in Toowoomba in an open and friendly environment and as it’s the only day of the year we offer some authentic German Beers people will travel from all parts of Southern East and Western Queensland to take part.”

An expanded variety of international and local beers will be served while people can bring their own steins to the day. Ten variety of beer steins will be available for purchase.                    

Head chef Nicole Croker will also get into the action by whipping up some traditional German feasts.


Prizes will be on offer for those getting into the Oktoberfest spirit with a best dressed male and best dressed female to be awarded.


“It is not an easy task choosing the best dressed as everyone puts in a deal of effort. But as a tip it’s often the little clothing additions that get you over the line,” Mr Coorey said.

 Oktoberfest 2014 starts from midday.
