For four days in October, Queen Elizabeth Theatre Plaza will be transformed into a mini Münich, combining German-European culture with West Coast bounty, in an Oktoberfest-themed setting.
Brought to you by the producers behind Le Diner en Blanc and The Deighton Cup, the inaugural Harvest Haus begins with a theatrical keg tapping by the Harvest Haus Burgomeister. Each four-hour seating at the long tables under the canopy of the great Halle marquee will highlight the evolution of Northern Europe’s harvest festivals from medieval times to the present and feature interactive theatrical and live musical performances.
Guests will be able to tuck into authentic German delicacies like Spätzle, Brezen, Bratwürst, Schnitzel and Sauerkraut prepared with locally harvested ingredients. There will also be a traditional Swiss-style chocolatier tempting the crowds with his delights.
Needless to say, European beer will be front and centre — served exclusively in the 500ml Harvest Haus Bierkrug (a ceramic stein) that can be rented for $1 or purchased for $8 and yours to keep. Alternatively, guests can bring their own 500ml ceramic stein.
Harvest Burgomeister VIP tickets take you right to the head table with reserved seating, access to expanded culinary offerings from Cocktails & Canapes in conjunction with Sole Foods, a complementary Harvest Haus stein, and access to a VIP bar, table service and more.
