OKTOBERFEST 2017 in SOFITEL MANILA this October 6-7, 2017


The much awaited Bavarian beer festival is back here in Manila to celebrate its 79th year of German Club Oktoberfest. Sofitel Manila and German Club Manila invites everyone to celebrate an authentic Oktoberfest event this October 6-7, 2017 at the Harbour tent of Sofitel Manila.

Its time to sing that German beer drinking song "Ein Prosit! Ein Prosit! Der Gemütlichkeit" meaning A toast, a toast to cheer and good times. Everyone will be dancing with joy over the table once more and have fun drinking an over flowing of San Miguel beer and nicely cooked German sausages, fried pork knuckles, sauerkraut and that yummy hot goulash soup.

Oktoberfest Signing

This year Sofitel Manila also celebrate its 8th year in hosting the authentic German Oktoberfest in the Philippines, I've found out only here at Sofitel Manila that they bring the original Oktoberfest in collaboration with the German Club Manila.

As for me, its my 4th year attending the Oktoberfest and Im so happy that there will be another event that I can share it to my friends who haven't been to an original Oktoberfest.

Also this year, Im planning to come in wearing an Oktoberfest costume. Im just hoping that my costume arrives on time hahaha.
