Oktoberfest Macau at MGM Taps the Keg in October
Annual Citywide Event of Entertainment, Gastronomy and Culture
Oktoberfest Macau at MGM is set to rock the town again between October 12 and 23 at MGM COTAI.

Oktoberfest Macau at MGM, the annual brand event of MGM, is set to return and rock the town again in October at MGM COTAI! First introduced in 2009, this world’s acclaimed carnival has been growing with new elements, making it bigger in scale and more exhilarating every year. As an outdoor party again this year, Oktoberfest Macau at MGM 2023 presents a 12-day authentic German bierfest with the charm of Macau as a UNESCO-designated “Creative City of Gastronomy”, to local residents and tourists from around the world. Over the years, this “Macau meets Munich” festival has become one of the most iconic annual events in town, which features the synergy of entertainment, gastronomy, technology and culture empowered by MGM’s “Tourism+” initiative.


The 13th Oktoberfest Macau at MGM once again receives the unwavering support of the Macao Government Tourism Office, the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany in Hong Kong and the German Macau Business Association as supporting units.


Oktoberfest Macau at MGM 2023 celebrates the essence of the quintessential Oktoberfest through the traditional German gourmet, entertainment and decorations, bringing the most authentic Bavarian party atmosphere to Macau. Staying in the blue-and-white Bavarian patterned beer tent and sitting by traditional long wooden tables, our guests can enjoy genuine German Oktoberfest brew Löwenbräu, traditional German food and beverage, carnival booth games, and cheer with our waitresses in traditional dirndl costumes. Every detail pays full homage to the original Oktoberfest at Germany. What’s more, the crowd’s favorite Högl Fun Band will once again fly over from Munich to hype up the nights with dynamic live performances, and essentially bringing back the staple theme song of Oktoberfest Macau at MGM, “Nei Hou, Macau!”. With Bavarian festivities in full bloom, guests can carouse and immerse into the most authentic German Oktoberfest, a cultural extravaganza offering great food, beer and entertainment.


Oktoberfest Macau at MGM 2023 takes place between October 12 and 23, from 6pm to 12am daily at the 1/F Roof Terrace of MGM COTAI, with the Family Day session taking place on October 15 from 11am to 3pm.
