About MGS Oktoberfest:
For over four decades, MGS Oktoberfest Penang has been a magnetic draw for people hailing from distant corners, and with time, its popularity has swelled to the extent that it now spans two consecutive nights every October. Each year, we proudly host a lively Bavarian band specially flown in from the southern reaches of Germany, ensuring an authentic Oktoberfest experience.
Traditionally, Oktoberfest is synonymous with beer, and the MGS event will not disappoint. Anticipate a selection of original Oktoberfest brews alongside an array of local and international beer brands. Your taste buds are in for a treat with a mouthwatering array of German delicacies including sausages, meatloaf, Sauerkraut, pretzels, and more.

In true Oktoberfest spirit, the MGS event will have an assortment of traditional games and entertainment to engage both adults and children, making this a truly immersive experience for all ages. And when the urge to dance strikes, a large dance floor, which is often filled to capacity, beckons everyone to join in the festivities!
