Welcome, to the 9th Cambridge Octoberfest, Cambridge & District CAMRA's youngest Beer Festival.

We are very proud of our festival, we put a lot of time and effort into making it the best we can.

Outline planning has already started for the festival.

A big thank you to our loyal and poor unpaid hard working volunteers for helping to run this and previous festivals; and for helping make the festivals a great success.

About the festival

The Cambridge Octoberfest was first held in 2007. This festival is the branch's smallest and its youngest beer festival. Everyone has heard of the Oktoberfest in Munich (Munchen), and regard it as a big beer festival. Whilst it is a large beer festival, there are only 6 breweries that are allowed to participate. These are the 6 breweries of Munich and consist of Augustinerbräu, Hacker-Pschorr Bräu, Hofbräu, Löwenbräu, Paulanerbräu and Spatenbräu. The event itself is a celebration of Munich life, but being Bavarians a lot of beer is consumed !

We have created an event that emulates the Munich Beer Festival, but in a much, much smaller scale. Now in its 9th year, our Octoberfest is a small, but good event.

The Cambridge Octoberfest needs you!

The Cambridge Octoberfest is run entirely by unpaid volunteers, without our volunteers the beer festival would not go on. We are always in need of volunteers, even if you can only do one shift or even just a few hours to cover meal breaks, it would help us tremendously.

You can get more details on the volunteering page.

The Octoberfest Poster

We would like it very much if you could display the festival poster at your place of work, social club or village/community notice board. You can download a PDF of the Octoberfest Poster. Alternately, if you're in the Cambridge area we can get printed posters to you - please drop us an email on and we'll arrange to get some to you.
