Oktoberfest Vietnam 2019, Ho Chi Minh City’s most exciting annual German beer festival, will return for its 15th year at the Windsor Plaza Hotel.

The annual event is a celebration of authentic German food, beer, and fun but also encompasses the flavors of its Southeast Asian home. Festivities kick off each night at 6pm and run until midnight from October 2 to 5 and continuing from October 9 to 12.

It recreates the atmosphere found in the massive beer halls of the original Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany, complete with an expansive buffet of savory German cuisine including sausages, schnitzel, crispy pork knuckle, sauerbraten, pretzels, sauerkraut, and much more.

New dishes this year incorporating Asian cuisine include Vietnamese heart of palm salad, Thai spicy and sour prawn soup, Thai grilled chicken drumstick, and deep-fried sundried pork with chili sauce.

Oktoberfest Vietnam has also been recognized by Reuters as one of the Top 10 Oktoberfest celebrations outside of Germany and has also been featured in the Chicago Tribune.

The long-time home of Oktoberfest Vietnam, Windsor Plaza Hotel has been hosting the event since 2005. The hotel brings the atmosphere of the traditional Oktoberfest from Munich with an opening ceremony featuring the tapping of the first beer keg. Guests wear traditional Bavarian attire while dancing to favorite Oktoberfest songs.

Windsor Plaza Hotel General Manager Mr. Adwin Chong said the hotel was proud to be continuing its long-standing tradition of hosting the region’s most significant Oktoberfest celebration. “Each year this event grows larger and larger, and this year we truly have something for everyone,” he said.

This year, the event welcomes again Partenkirchner Musikanten, a traditional Oktoberfest band from Germany that has played concerts worldwide.
