Hampshire’s OctoberFest is a fantastic family festival held in Basingstoke from 13th-15th October, attracting over 8000 visitors annually. The festival has a huge variety of real ale from across the region with nearly 220 different beers and ciders, and new for this year - craft ales will be sold in a third quiet marquee. This fun weekend is also full of children’s and family activities and live entertainment. This year we also have a dedicated marquee (Sunday only) for Family Fun including Children’s Theatre and Circus Skills. Don't forget our Friday Works Night Out, a great way to entertain clients, customers or staff - group discounts available.

The event hosts some fantastic catering and craft stalls to visit. This celebration - the biggest of its kind in the South East - is organised by The Wessex Heritage Trust, in collaboration with Upham Brewery and supported by The Breeze FM, the event aims to provide people in Hampshire with a wonderful, activity full and tasty event appropriate for adults and children.
