Ibosim’s OktoberFest

  • Friday 5th October,Port Des Torrent

Ibiza’s very own craft brewery Ibosim are celebrating Oktoberfest on Friday with some very special offers. FREE BEER! There, that should have got your attention. The only catch is that you’ll have to turn up in lederhosen to get your free pint. Fear not, if the idea of looking like, well like a bloke in lederhosen, doesn’t sound worth a free pint, you can still get a pint for the price of a half during ‘hoppy hour’, 6.00pm to 8.30pm.

In addition, and until closing, special discounts for liquidation of stocks, oh my (hic!). cervezaibosim.com

Oktoberfest

  • Factory Bar and Smokehouse, 5th October, Claire B

Friday October 5 sees Ibiza’s very own Oktoberfest at the Factory Bar and Smokehouse, organised in conjunction with Ibiza Style. On offer will be Paulaner, traditional German beer and Bavarian delicacies plus fun and entertainment for all the family. The large room and the terrace will be turned into a beer tent and fruit schnapps will be available as well as copious amounts of beer. On the menu will be lots of Bavarian snacks and several hearty dishes. The hors d’oeuvre plate includes meatballs (rissoles) made with fresh obatzda (a Bavarian cheese delicacy and beer garden staple), smoked trout fillet, radishes, gherkins and freshly baked pretzels. No Oktoberfest would be complete without sausages – there will be genuine Weißwürste (white sausages) with sweet mustard, small Nuremberger roast sausages with sauerkraut and authentic Thüringer bratwurst. Munich-style potato salad will also be served. The promised highlights, however, are the suckling pig knuckles and the meat loaf, and for dessert, warm apple strudel with vanilla custard.

Then, depending on how you feel, you can either burn these calories off with some sporting fun and games or by taking part in the tug of war, trying your luck at the coconut shy, playing darts, or Schuhplattler dancing on the Oktoberfest grounds beside the marquee.

This 2-day festival is a non-profit cultural event promoted by the Asociación de Artistas y Empresas Audiovisuales de Ibiza and supported by the Consell Insular de Ibiza and Ibiza Town Hall. It will bring together local artists and national and international collectives on the island to present an incredible line up of artistic experiences in a unique setting, featuring light in many forms, bringing together technology and innovation with art and creativity. From fire, its most primitive form, to the creativity that today’s technology allows, the festival invites the visitor to explore and be amazed by the creative capabilities of light, promoting dialogue with the island and its historical sites as living entities and cultural symbols.

Agenda; Ibiza October 2018; Fiestas, Gastronomy, Clubs, Culture

This year will see double the number of installations from last year. There will be video installations, performances, projections and shows throughout the Port of Ibiza, La Marina and Dalt Vila. The public will also be part of the show because there will be interactive installations where the participation of the attendees is required. France, Switzerland, England, Portugal, Italy, Argentina, Russia and Jordan are some of the countries present at Ibiza Light Festival 2018, represented by visual creators such as Richar Santana, El Imaginario, Intrvl AV, Javier Ens and others to be confirmed.

Bigger and Better

Every year this festival gets bigger and better and attracts more visitors. It is becoming one of the main cultural events on the island and a sensational way to end the peak season and brighten up the town as the darker nights of autumn draw in. It will start at darkness falls, about 8pm.
