Oktoberfest Marquee Hire

A large range of beer tents and tables for an outdoor event

Celebrate Oktoberfest in style!

As autumn approaches, it’s time explore event opportunities beyond summer. The rich tradition of Oktoberfest is now celebrated around the world. The iconic German beer festival provides a great commercial opportunity to bring the spirit of Munich’s Oktoberfest to your own outdoor events.

The history of Ocktoberfest

Originating from Munich, Germany, Oktoberfest is an annual folk festival that dates back to 1810. It was initially a celebration of the Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig’s marriage, and it quickly became an eagerly anticipated annual celebration event. In modern times, Ocktoberfest has evolved into one of the world’s largest beer festivals. It draws millions of visitors to enjoy German sausages, Bavarian pretzels, and of course, the famous Oktoberfest beer at Ocktoberfest themed events up and down the UK.

Marquee hire for Octoberfest events

As the festival takes place between September and October, a marquee is often a great venue option. It can be completely themed to transport your guests to the heart of Bavaria. Our clearspan event marquees provide the ideal setting for your Oktoberfest party, offering flexibility in size, design, and layout.

A clearspan marquee will provide ample room for seating, dancing, and entertainment. Field and Lawn have a vast range of corporate marquees, suitable for Ocktoberfest.  Our marquees come in a range of sizes from small event structures from 3m up to 9m. Our medium sized marquees range between 10m to 20m. If you are looking to hire a large marquee for your event, we can provide structures that span between 25m up to 30m.

We love a great beer tent!  Field and Lawn provide a wide range of bar structures and beer tents throughout the year to festivals, shows, events and exhibitions.  Here is a recent example from an outdoor festival. This marquee hire was complimented with long wooden tables and benches to help create a social, lively atmosphere.

The complete Bavarian experience!

To truly embrace the Oktoberfest spirit, our range of structures extends beyond clearspan marquees. We offer authentic smaller beer tents and conical marquees.  These smaller marquees make for great merchandise tents, and security check points.
