Oktoberfest is coming to Chester Racecourse, with the world-renowned celebration of Bavarian culture providing a specially themed twist to raceday on Saturday 30 September.

The enthralling event, which falls on Watergate Cup Day and features an eight-card race meeting, is guaranteed to add a little Oompah to a memorable occasion with family and friends.

Racegoers will be treated to performances from Bavarian bands, strolling accordion players and stilt walkers against a backdrop of bunting, barrels, and benches.

From Oktoberfest Poutine to Pretzel Burgers, the legendary German festival will be reflected in some of the food offerings available at the racecourse too, which will also serve traditional German beers, giving you the option to raise a stein and toast a thrilling raceday with a difference.

Those wanting the most immersive Oktoberfest experience are advised to purchase tickets in the Tattersalls Enclosure or County Concourse.
