CLARK FREEPORT — The first and only authentic German Oktoberfest in this freeport is all set at the Clark Marriott Hotel here at 6 p.m. on October 11-12.
‘Oktoberfest 2019’’ the German Beer Festival, will be the first festival of this kind that will be held in this freeport.
Goeran Soelter, Clark Marriott Hotel general manager, said the festival promises two exciting nights where festival goers, foreign and local, can experience a taste of Germany.
Soelter, a German national, said efforts have been made to make the festival as authentic as possible, patterned the original Bavarian celebration.
He said festival goers will be treated with free-flowing Weihenstephan beer, one of the finest German wheat beers, and will be provided their fills of German food.
Weihenstephan is the oldest brewery in the world dating back to a thousand years to the time of the Benedictine monks. Munich-based Oktoberfest band that performs in all over Asia, Anton Show, will also take over the fun and entertainment.
During the press conference on Wednesday, Anton Show performed the original Oktoberfest theme and made everybody dance.
Tickets to the festival are priced at P2,500 which also comes with complimentary German beer mugs and other freebies.
The hotel will raffle off overnight stays and dining gift certificates.
“It is basically bringing one part of Germany to Clark that our guests and the Kapampangan can enjoy,” said Soelter.
“German Oktoberfest is truly worth experiencing first. We hope to continue bringing more firsts to our valued guests, partners, and even our associates,” he added.
Clark Marriott Hotel is the first and only internationally branded 5-star hotel in this freeport.
