IF YOU'VE ever been lucky enough to attend Oktoberfest in Munich you will know what a wild and extraordinary riot it is.

This annual16-day folk festival running from mid or late September to the first weekend in October sees more than 6 million people from around the world attending and who knows how many litres of beer go down in that time. Or how many metres of spicy sausage go with it.

The Oktoberfest is an important part of Bavarian culture, having been held since 1810.

Other cities across the world also hold Oktoberfest celebrations, modelled after the original Munich event.

So therefore, why should we not celebrate it here in Noosa? We love a good party, and don't need much encouragement to celebrate festivals from around the world.

On Sunday afternoon on October 4, Cafe Le Monde will be transformed to a large German beer hall so you can celebratte this famous global festival without leaving the comfort of your home town.

The Euro Band will perform traditional German music guaranteed to having you singing and drinking like the revellers in Munich.

Maidens in costume and lads in lederhosen will serve you beer in steins and bring out freshly baked Tanglewood pretzels, German Bratwurst dogs with house-made sauerkraut and München mustard.

"We have prizes for best dressed male and female with two $100 Cafe Le Monde vouchers to the winners," a spokesperson said.

Entry on the door is $5 or $20 with a stein of Stone & Wood.

Kick on long into the night with DJs Massroom, NuCache, Natø &


Secure a table quickly as this will turn into a party to equal the real thing (with a lot of stretching of the imagination.)
