Octoberfest Basingstoke

There are very few events in the country that offer a line up including beer, cider, Victorian fun and ferrets. It’s obviously a winning combination which attracts record visitor numbers each year to Basingstoke’s Octoberfest. The festival showcases a large range of producers selling great food, beers and cider with a European flavour served up Basingstoke’s twin towns. There is a full programme of demonstrations, exhibitions, craft workshops and talks as well as live music and dance, street entertainment, traditional games, competitions and children’s activities.

Alongside the usual full programme of demonstrations and exhibitions, Octoberfest has added ferret-racing, a Victorian fun fair, a children’s animal farm, classic cars, steam engines, circus skills and pony rides in recent years with over 100 different beers, ciders and wines available.

A lot of people think Basingstoke is a new town but it’s mentioned in the Domesday Book as a prosperous market town. Octoberfest has the atmosphere of a traditional country fair and makes a great day out for everyone, whether you like ferrets or not!
