Whether you’re an Oktoberfest first-timer (heaven forbid) or you’ve been 100 times before – chances are you haven’t heard about some exciting additions to the German craft beer extravaganza. If you’re after something a little more on the sophisticated side, then you can’t go passed the festivities at Ascot Racecourse; and for those mindful of the impending beer belly, there’s always The Oktoberfest Beer Run. Perth, it’s time get out that dusty Lederhosen or Dirndl!

Oktoberfest at Ascot Racecourse

So swap your fascinator for some fun Bavarian attire and rally up your friends!
