It’s almost time for everyone’s favourite Bavarian festival that involves steins, steins, and more steins (of beer).

This year, you can celebrate the affair on Saturday, September 29, at Oktoberfest Vancouver taking place at Hastings Racecourse. Tickets to this event are limited so you’ll want to get them before it’s too late.

Luckily for you, we’re giving away free tickets to the beer-inspired event so get your lederhosen ready for the occasion right now. You might even win a prize for best dressed if you do!

Taste traditional fare, see the action of exciting horse races, dance to live music, and of course, enjoy a massive beer or two. The authentic experience at Oktoberfest Vancouver features four exclusive areas accessible only to ticketholders, each with their own special Parallel 49 brew.

If you’re not a fan of beer or traditional German food, check out the Wine Haus where they’ll be pouring Sawmill Creek sauvignon blanc and merlot. Foodwise, this area has traditional soft pretzels and a curated selection of premium cheeses.
