What is Shropshire Oktoberfest?

Shropshire Oktoberfest is a two-day event in Shrewsbury Quarry, where we bring together over 180 real ales, lagers and ciders, as well as gin, cocktails and fizz. But that's not all, we have tasty street food to accompany your drinks, and for entertainment, we have a huge live music stage with incredible local bands, Friday night Beer Tasting with Laura Hadland, a silent disco, Carpool Karaoke, and a Comedy Club on Saturday.

So basically, it's one big party!
