The prestigious celebration, which dates back to the early 1800s, showcases and honors all things German culture, from enjoying beer to presenting the award for best costume to the famous German dish known as brotzeitbrettl. Bryanston Sports Club had everything to offer its members and visitors.

“Today is especially special for us as we celebrate our 50th anniversary and Oktoberfest. Oktoberfest is one of our signature events during the year. We try to provide our people with traditional fair food Germans and of course drinks. Finally, we will judge the best costume of the day and give it a prize,” said Bryanston Sports Club Social Division President Ian ‘Snowy’ Snowball.
