Welcome to Hampshire’s OctoberFest

Back again for the 9th year running, and promising to be bigger than ever, Hampshire’s OctoberFest is returning for 2017.

Organised by the Wessex Heritage Trust, the event attracts over 8,000 visitors yearly. This year’s OctoberFest will take place 13th-15th October 2017, and will feature over 190 beers, ciders and wines from across the region plus delicious food from local suppliers. For the first time we will also be introducing a selection of Craft Ales.

We are currently working hard to put together a fantastic line up of both beers and bands, so keep checking back for updates as we work out the details. Plus follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for all the news as it happens and join the Facebook event.

The ever-popular Works Night Out returns on the Friday night, providing a great opportunity for businesses across Hampshire to let their hair down and enjoy a team night out with great beer, great food and great music. This is a fantastic opportunity to entertain staff, clients and/or customers.

Plus organisations across the region can get involved with Hampshire’s OctoberFest, by sponsoring a barrel or taking up a trade pitch.

Returning for 2017…

  • A huge choice of beer and cider to whet your whistle – with some old favourites and exciting new-comers
  • A range of delicious food to entice – expect hog roast, pizza, chinese, pretzels, churros and more…
  • Local trade stalls – previous years have included homemade treats, artisan beer/cider, crafts, jewellery – and that’s just to name a few!
  • Entertainment from local performance groups
  • The return of our popular family fun Sunday
  • Music to mosh to – everything from funk to punk, and boozey blues to rock and ska
  • But most importantly… great times with great company.

PLUS, New for this year……

  • Dedicated marquee for family activities of all ages on Sunday – REMEMBER – UNDER 16’S free that day and Adults HALF price
  • “Quiet Bar” – an additional marquee selling Craft Ales – a great place to chat with friends, colleagues and family without music

We’ll see you at the bar!
