camden's vegan oktoberfest

vegan beers × bratwurst ×  street food ×  live music

 

Vegtoberfest the UK's first 100% vegan Oktoberfest returns to Camden Town this October.

Vegtoberfest, the UK’s first vegan Oktoberfest celebration, launched in October 2018 with a raucous sold out show at Camden’s Fest venue. This pioneering plant based extravaganza is returning with two festivals for 2019 on Saturday 12th and Saturday 19th October. The vegan beer festival couples the merry traditions of Oktoberfest with a modern twist; vegan friendly beers, street food, live music, burlesque and comedy.

“The ethos of Vegtoberfest is to modernise the Oktoberfest experience. Yes, a great party with loads of Bavarian beer is key to what we offer but Oompah bands and pork products are replaced with vegan food and drink and cutting edge performance arts.” 

Oktoberfest is a beer festival first and foremost and Vegtoberfest is just that. Vegan-friendly Bavarian beers such as Spaten, Lowenbrau and more will sit alongside a handful of local vegan craft ales, while vegan wines, mulled wine and hot and cold vegan cocktails will also be available.

It wouldn't be an Oktoberfest celebration without Bratwurst so Vegtoberfest has drafted in Camden’s leading vegan street food specialists Rudy’s Dirty Vegan Diner.  They will be serving 100% vegan, Bavarian Wiesswurst, Bratwurst and Bockwurst sausages with all the usual trimmings. They’ll also be serving their infamous vegan Dirty Burger with baycon, fried onion, cheese, lettuce and pickles and German potato pancakes aka kartoffelpuffer. Vegtoberfest will also make use of the Fest’s Birdcage Restaurant which will become a vegan diner serving stone-baked vegan pizza, loaded fries, pretzels and vegan ice cream

Fest Camden's main room will be transformed into a marvellous festival-themed beer hall with decor from Chou Rouge - the creative team behind Gala Festival, Queens Yard Summer Party and Barrio Bars - where guests will enjoy their beers while live music from the amazing Old Dirty Brasstards (on 12th October) and Brasstermind (on 19th October) plays out on stage.

Lolo Brow; ‘female drag queen sideshow nut’ and ‘lizard lady’ will take charge on 12th October. Recognised at the forefront of Neo-Burlesque for her award winning comedy burlesque acts and diverse skills ranging from fire shows to whips and lack of morality, Lolo is sure to impress. London’s leading cabaret star Dee Riley takes over hosting on the 19th October and will be treating the crowd to his infamous stage magic and comedy routines. 

Guests can also enjoy food and drink from the Wonderfest Rooftop with its views over Camden Stables Market and groups can book one of the venue’s raised beer tables with the best view in the house.

Tickets start at £10.
