Maidstone: Oktoberfest comes to Mote Park for a second year

By Angela Cole

Mote Park in Maidstone gets its second serving of Oktoberfest this weekend.

Returning for a second year on Friday, October 12 and Saturday, October 13, the festival will have traditional Bavarian entertainment, food and drink and is strictly for over 18s.

The largest beer and folk festival in the world, Oktoberfest traditionally takes place in Bavaria and Munich from mid September and continues throughout October, with its roots going back to 1810 to celebrate the marriage of Prince Ludwig to Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen.

The festival in Maidstone consists of giant tents, or Bierhalles, that house thousands of revellers enjoying the delights of the Bavarian breweries and traditional Bavarian cuisine.

There will also be the added treat of oompah music to jolly everyone along.
