Celebration of German Fun and Food

Oktoberfest Vietnam 2019 - Ho Chi Minh City’s most exciting annual German beer festival - returns for its 15th year at the Windsor Plaza Hotel. A celebration of authentic German food, beer, and fun, Oktoberfest Vietnam 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 continue from October 9 to 12.

The annual event 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 featured this year incorporating Asian cuisine include Vietnamese heart of palm salad, Thai spicy and sour prawn soup, Thai grilled chicken drumsticks, and deep-fried sundried pork with chili sauce.

With an Oktoberfest Vietnam ticket, guests can also enjoy free-flow Schneider Weisse and Krombacher beer directly imported from the brewery.

The long-time home of Oktoberfest Vietnam, the Windsor Plaza Hotel has been hosting the event since 2005. 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 in the US.

The hotel provides the atmosphere of the traditional Oktoberfest in 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 is 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.

The event this year again welcomes Partenkirchner Musikanten, a traditional Oktoberfest band from Germany that has played concerts worldwide. From beer tents to banquet halls, the band is famous for their beer-toasting medleys. There will also be a great lineup of entertainment, including a violin performance from Ms. Khmelivskaya Serafima, on the 7th floor, and sets by DJ Mai Tuong Vi and rapper Tran Phan Thien Bao, as well as freestyle dancers on the 5th floor. Guests can partake in delightful activities, exciting games, prizes, and many other surprises.

There are stunning prizes on offer, including the grand prize of an SCB Master/Visa Card Debit valued at VND50 million; five SCB cards with a value of VND2 million every night; three Selena motorbikes; and many other exciting prizes in the nightly lucky draws.
