Oktoberfest returns to the iconic Strathcona Hotel pub for Victoria’s annual celebration of beer, live music, and the chance to win a custom stein as well as FC Bayern Munich jersey.

Since 2017, the downtown restaurant and nightlife hub has celebrated the German festival with the help of local brewery Hoyne Brewing company.
