Weymouth Octoberfest – Real Ale and Cider Festival
6 October @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Weymouth’s ever popular Octoberfest is set to make its annual return on Friday October 6th and Saturday the 7th in the Ocean Room, Weymouth Pavilion with its fine seaside views.
This extremely popular event now is now in its 12th year at the Pavilion. It is organised by West Dorset Campaign For Real Ale (CAMRA) and will this year feature over 70 real ales, ciders and perries from Wales. We think this will be the largest selection of Welsh beers ever seen in Dorset.
Tickets go on sale from August 1st, are priced at £11 per session and include a commemorative glass, programme and two halves of beer or cider. (CAMRA members receive an extra pint at the membership stand.)
This event was a sell out last year and customers are urged to get their tickets early to avoid disappointment from the following outlets:
or by phoning 01305 783225. Please note the Pavilion charges a £2 booking fee per ticket.
Alternatively, you can buy tickets in person in Weymouth from The Globe and The Doghouse pubs as well as Chalbury Food and Wine or direct from the Pavilion box office.
On Portland, the Royal Portland Arms and in Dorchester, The Convivial Rabbit are also stocking tickets.
