It'll be burgers and bratwurst at dawn, as this year's Oktoberfest pits two nations against each other.
The traditional bavarian bash, which will be held at Mote Park in Maidstone on Saturday, October 2, has become the bigger Big British Beer Bash v Oktoberfest for the first time.
It will have both German and British delights from pretzels, bratwurst and Bavarian bingo to Yorkshire puddings and fish and chips.
For over 18s only, the festival consists of giant tents - or Bierhalles - that house thousands of revellers enjoying the delights of the Bavarian breweries and traditional Bavarian cuisine.
But this year British beer will be joining the offering, with festivities being set to oompa music in the afternoon and modern pop music in the evening.
The afternoon session runs from noon to 5pm and the evening session from 6pm to 11pm.
The event did not miss a year as last year's event was able to go ahead with extra Covid safety measures.
