Time to take out the Lederhosen and start practicing your favourite German phrases, because Oktoberfest is coming to Vancouver! Harvest Haus, the biggest celebration of Oktoberfest in Vancouver, will be back from October 5 to 14 in a new, bigger location.
The fourth annual event will be taking place in Downtown Vancouver at Sole Food Street Farms (88 Pacific Boulevard), next to BC Place. This year’s Harvest Haus features a packed schedule of events fit for an excellent evening of guzzling beer and feasting on bratwurst.
The expanded “Mini Munich” will feature seven dinner sittings and a lineup of events that include axe throwing contests, Stein Games (beer sports competitions), a Lippensynchron Battle (i.e. lip-synching), and lots more surprises.
Make sure to have your beer drinking pants on, because this is one raucous party! Tickets to the event are on sale now, and the expanded capacity means that around 1,500 revelers will be there to celebrate each night.
Tickets are available now and cost $25 for general admission, which includes access to a four and a half hour celebration with unique musical performances and authentic European food stalls. Alternatively, splurge for the Harvest Bürgermeister ($40.00) for VIP-seating, a complimentary beer stein, access to a VIP bar, and other perks.
Harvest Haus 2017 will take place from October 5 – 14 on select days, and the event lineup will be as follows:
- Oktober 5th, Thursday Evening – The Grand Opening
- Oktober 6th, Friday Evening – The Duelling Arts + Clash of the Axes
- Oktober 7th, Saturday Afternoon – The Stein Games
- Oktober 7th, Saturday Evening – Ach, Ja! It’s Saturday!
- Oktober 13th, Friday Evening – Zany Mode!
