Oktoberfest Brisbane Terms & Conditions

Oktoberfest Brisbane is a German Cultural Festival which exists to share our culture, heritage and passions with you. The festive atmosphere encourages the appreciation and responsible enjoyment of what our culture has to offer. Anyone expecting a 'swillathon' will only be disappointed.

As a festival organiser, we take our responsibility to create a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone seriously. Anti-social behaviour will not be accepted. To ensure we succeed at presenting the quality festival you have come to expect, we have written these terms and conditions.

First up, 'you' and 'your' refers to the customer. 'We', 'us', 'our', 'Oktoberfest' and 'festival organiser' refers to Oktoberfest Brisbane Pty Ltd, its employees, contractors, volunteers and authorised persons. 'This agreement' means these terms & conditions and any other conditions specified by us on our website, booking forms or other communications.

Safety is paramount. Whilst at the festival, your safety and the safety of those around you is our primary focus and essential to your enjoyment of the festivities. So please enjoy a meal together, drink water regularly, protect yourself from the sun and consume alcohol responsibly.

We engage qualified first aid staff who are there to help with any medical situation. By attending the festival, you consent to these qualified first aid providers accessing medical information about you available to them and treating you accordingly.

Oktoberfest Brisbane Staff love you very much, so anything they ask you to do is because they want you to have an awesome day. Please listen and follow any reasonable directions they might give you, it could be important!

Proof of Age ist sehr wichtig {is very important}! Oktoberfest Brisbane is open to all ages and if you look younger than 25, we will ask for valid photo ID. To enter the festival site without your mum or dad, or to purchase or consume alcohol at the festival, you must have a valid photo ID as proof of age. In Queensland, the Liquor Act 1992 defines five types of ID which are acceptable evidence of age. The ID document must be current and include a photo of you and your date of birth. Here they are, pick one and put it in your wallet now!

Bag Checks are necessary, because some things are not allowed to be brought to Oktoberfest Brisbane. Examples of some things you can't bring in are glass, alcohol, weapons, illicit substances, pets, chandeliers or cement mixers. We do let you bring in things such as picnic blankets, tablecloths, seating cushions, children and your in-laws, but only if you promise to take them all home again at the end of the day.

Seriously though, it is a condition of entry to the festival that you permit a search of your possessions at the time of entry to the venue. Any item we may consider inappropriate can't be brought in and may be confiscated. Refusal to consent to a search will prevent your entry to the festival site which will probably cause tears.

Food and Drink on offer at Oktoberfest Brisbane is some of the most tasty and authentic available outside of Germany. It wasn't easy to find, so please support our handcrafted beverage and foodie partners by leaving yours at home.

Your Behaviour tells those around you a lot about you, so play nice! We're all there for the same reasons plus no one likes to be shouted at. Treat others how you want to be treated, otherwise we may ask you to leave the festival.

Alcohol is ok, but please follow our example and enjoy the selection of quality handcrafted beverages on offer at Oktoberfest Brisbane sensibly and responsibly. Be aware of your limits and make use of the many public transport options to get you home safely. We support the responsible service of alcoholic beverages.

The entire Oktoberfest Brisbane festival site is one licensed area where the Liquor Act 1992 applies. Only alcohol purchased from outlets at Oktoberfest Brisbane may be consumed on site. BYO alcohol is not permitted and will be confiscated. Any patron wishing to consume alcohol must have valid photo ID as defined in these terms & conditions. Supplying alcohol to a minor is an offence and you will be referred to police.

Unduly Intoxicated is not ok. We support our staff in the responsible service of alcoholic beverages and in the refusal of service if required. Our security staff are also trained in RSA. If you are unduly intoxicated, we cannot allow you to remain at the festival.

Smoking is not permitted in any area of the Oktoberfest Brisbane site except for in designated smoking areas. Alcohol is not permitted to be taken into designated smoking areas.

Illicit Drugs are not ok. If you are found supplying, consuming or in possession of illicit drugs while attending Oktoberfest Brisbane you will be referred to police.

Smart Wristbands are the latest craze and ours are so much more than just a fashion accessory! Your smart wristband is your unique key to your cashless experience at the Festival. As of 2017, it is the fast and exclusive way to make all your purchases at Oktoberfest Brisbane! You will also need it to get in and out of the Festival site. It is super simple and easy to use, head to the Cashless page on our website for the full rundown.

So how do I get mine I hear you say? It's easy: on entry, your ticket will be swapped for your personal smart wristband. You must wear it on your right wrist for the duration of your stay at the Festival. Anyone found on site without a valid wristband will be removed from site.

Damaged or defaced wristbands will not be accepted and wristbands which are removed or tampered with will be rendered invalid and will not be replaced. Replacement of lost, destroyed or stolen wristbands is entirely at the discretion of the festival organiser.

Clothing is ok! Please wear some. And trust us, you'll be sorry if you don't wear traditional German clothing (aka Tracht), because everyone else will be. Also, appropriate footwear is a must whilst on the Oktoberfest Brisbane site.

The Environment needs our love. 100% of the packaging you see at the festival is guaranteed recyclable or compostable. Show Mother Nature your love and place your litter in the correct bin at Oktoberfest Brisbane.

Glass is out. The Oktoberfest Brisbane site is a Glass Free Zone. To assist us in complying with the conditions of our Liquor Licence, glass, earthenware or things made from similar materials are not permitted to be brought into any part of the venue. But there's good news, check out our exclusive Oktoberfest Brisbane Stein! It looks like glass, but is 100% recyclable plastic. If you have yours from last time you came to the festival, you're welcome to bring it along.

Pets are awesome, but unfortunately not permitted on the Oktoberfest Brisbane site, unless they are registered assistance animals, in which case they are welcome.

Telling everyone about Oktoberfest Brisbane is ok! But please, if you are a professional or semi-professional photographer, videographer or journalist, you must make contact with our media team via [email protected] before you head to the festival to record it. Amateur cameras (such as for example mobile phones) are permitted but images may only be used for private purposes and not public display. At the discretion of the festival organiser, any amateur still and video footage is permitted to be shared on social media. By entering the festival site, you consent to being included in any still, video and/or sound recordings of the festival that may take place and waive all rights to any photograph, image or likeness produced whilst attending the festival and agree for these recordings to be used by the Festival Organiser at their reasonable discretion.
