Wait no more as the first Bierfest is coming to Times Square from 12th – 15th May. Guests are promised to have amazing experiences about German culture at the center of Newcastle.
German Bierfest is formed on the concept of a sommerfest or summer fest. Normally, there can be found market stalls, beer garden and various funfair. Introducing the first Bierfest to Newcastle, the organizers hope to make it an annual event. “We want to bring a new attraction to North East England and we expect up to 10,000 visitors”, said Carsten Raun, Festival Director. “And people of all ages are welcome”.
Coming to the Bierfest, visitors will immerse themselves in the vintage setting of German Village populated by wooden huts. Here, guests can find all kinds of original products from hot delicious wurst to luscious sweets and unique souvenirs. In addition, there is a Bier Garden where visitors can enjoy a cold German beer in the relaxing ambiance of a summer day.
A Sekt Garden nearby is an exclusive area that offers an opportunity to taste the famous Sekt or German sparkling wine. Not far away is Fun Time Area with various funfair games such as Hau den Lukas, familiar bull-riding, shooting hut.
Opposite to the mellow and easygoing atmosphere of the outdoors market, the party feeling fills up the Fest Tent. There is vigorous excitement inside that guarantees a fabulous party. A German band will entertain revelers all night with live music and performances. Guests will be seated next to one another by the long tables and benches. There is a limited capacity of 1200 seats so it is advisory to book tickets online.
Newcastle Bierfest promotes authentic cultural experiences. Three types of beer namely Bavarian Weißbier, Festbier and Craftbier are presented by Bavarian Festbeer Brewery, located in the north of Bavaria, Germany.
