Break out the Lederhosen and start practicing your German because Oktoberfest in Vancouver is starting soon! There are two major Oktoberfest events in Vancouver that give you the chance to experience the infamous German party without having to endure the price of a plane ticket.

Tickets are now on sale for both events so grab a few before they sell out (and they will sell out)!

Harvest Haus 2017

Harvest Haus is an immersive food and drink festival based around the European festivals of old.

Tickets are on sale now, so pick up a pair before they sell out!

The expanded event 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.

Dates: October 5, 6, 7, 13, 14
Location: 88 Pacific Boulevard, Vancouver, BC
Tickets: $25 (general admission), $40 (VIP)
