It’s the time of year for beer – check out where to celebrate Oktoberfest in Hong Kong

Brush those mooncake crumbs off your lap – the Mid-Autumn Festival in China is over, and it’s time to get ready for Oktoberfest.

While Oktoberfest isn’t exactly the most traditional celebration you could find in Hong Kong, the massive expat population guarantees a great time to be had all month long. And in true Hong Kong style, the city can’t help but add a special something to the water (or beer). Whether it’s rounding out festivities with Halloween costumes, participating in German pronunciation contests, or chowing down on shrimp cocktail with beer jelly, Oktoberfest in Hong Kong is sure to be an experience you don’t want to miss.

Marco Polo Hongkong Hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui is, once again, hosting their annual Bierfest from October 16 to November 7. Work for a hotel? Bring three friends on Hotelier Night for free! And don’t forget your costumes on October 30 and 31 – the only thing better than laughing along to the band Notenhobler’s hilarious antics is doing it dressed like a pretty princess.
