Event Services may include:
Your venue will have a genuine Bavarian Festhalle atmosphere. Our Special Events Team will transform your venue with colourful banners and decorations to give your delegates the feeling of walking into a Bavarian Festhalle!
Meeting & Greeting
Your guests will be welcomed by our Special Events Team in traditional Bavarian tracht (dirndl & lederhosen) and each guest will receive a souvenir button upon entering.
The Official Keg Tapping Ceremony is the highlight of our annual Festival and our Special Events Team will re-enact it for your guests! Two of your representatives will act as the official keg tappers. All your delegates can come and fill their steins with a sample and raise it up for a traditional cheer of “Ein Prosit!”, all under the guidance of our Master of Ceremonies!
We can arrange to have an award winning Bavarian Band with a repertoire of polkas, waltzes and contemporary music. Want a live accordion player at the entrance while guests are arriving? We can help with that too. You can also add a Bavarian Folk Dance performance.
