Fear not beer lovers! Never one to miss out, Bogota will play host to a series of Oktoberfest events this September and October.

Club Colombia will be holding their own event on September 26, which will celebrate the launch of Bavaria’s Marzen edition beer. With tickets from $50,000 and a line up including Sidestepper, Black Box, Systema Solar and Bazurto All Stars, what better way to spend a Saturday?

The Camara Colombo-Alemana are organising the ‘original’ Oktoberfest, which has been going for more than eight years, at Parque Guaymaral on Saturday October 3 from 11am until 11pm and Sunday, 11am-7pm . Expect German bands, typical food and lots of events for children – tickets from $10,000 for two days and are available at tuticket.com.

Up on 83, La Ventana will be holding its own Oktoberfest party on October 3. With a checked shirt dress code, and a line-up including German and Colombian beats, it promises to be a good night out.

The Monkey House will be celebrating with their extensive range of beers from September 24 to October 3.

So what are you waiting for? Prost!
