German Oktoberfest in Moscow

Enjoy a beer and Bavarian music at the German Oktoberfest in Moscow German Russian Chamber of Commerce

If you can't make it to Munich in September to have a beer or two at the world-famous Oktoberfest, you can also stay in Moscow and visit the Oktoberfest the Germans organize here.

From 14th to 16th September 2017 the German Russian Chamber of Commerce invites you to celebrate Oktoberfest at the German Embassy in Moscow. 

Don’t miss your chance to enjoy Bavarian specialties and, of course, freshly ‘tapped’ German beer, and experience extensive entertainment and our animation program.

The three days (Thursday and Friday from 17-23h and Saturday 12-22h) will be accompanied by traditional Bavarian music performed on two stages: by the authentic Oktoberfest band, "Die Kirchdorfer", which is playing since 1994 at the Theresienwiese in Munich, and the Russian band “Bavarskaya Karusel” playing traditional German Music in the tents. There will also be special program for families with children on Saturday (16th) - no beer for our little guests, though. 

Come along and bring your friends, colleagues, business partners and families. Bring your traditional Bavarian clothes if you have and enjoy the Oktoberfest in Moscow.

Prost! (German for: Cheers!)
