- The Bavarian spirit will be celebrated from 12 to 16 October
Sun, sea, sand, and a carnival is what Colombo Oktoberfest promises this year, with five days of absolute enjoyment being held for the first time at The Beach Park at Port City Colombo. From 12-16 October, festivities will begin each day from 6 p.m. and continue until 1 a.m.
Cinnamon Grand will be serving authentic German cuisine, including a range of German sausages, pretzels, pork knuckles, ham, and slow-cooked ribs, and for the sweet tooth, apple strudel and Bavarian ice cream. German hostesses in traditional dirndl and lederhosen will be in attendance with a wide selection of beverages to suit every discerning palate, keeping partygoers in good spirits.
Adding more to the spirit and feel of Bavaria will be the Bavarian Party Band entertaining the merrymakers on all five days, with Sri Lanka’s top bands Redeemers, OIC, Magic Box, Slipping Chairs, and Misty helping keep the festive spirit in constant motion with toes tapping, hips swaying, hands clapping, and voices in full swing.
Golden sands and balmy breezes form the perfect tropical backdrop to the fiesta, which also has plans for an entire gamut of traditional Oktoberfest games promising to keep the adrenaline flowing as competition reigns high. The Kids Activity Zone will put the children in full carnival mood, making sure parents can fully enjoy the full length and breadth of the party on the beach.
