Puerto de la Cruz is putting the final touches to the preparations for a new edition of the Bavarian Week, Oktoberfest, held this year between August 27 and September 2. This is the 45th edition of this event that pays tribute to the German culture, with its traditional music and its gastronomy.
Traditional German music
The musical touch will be in charge of three orchestras “Reinheitsgebot”, “Hüttenzauber” and “Blechbuckel”, who will put their hallmark in various concerts in the most emblematic places of Puerto de la Cruz, such as the Calle Iriarte (August 27 at 9:00 pm), the Church of La Peña de Francia (August 29 at 8:30 pm) and the Avenida de Colón (August 30 at 9:00 pm).
The crowning touch to this Bavarian Week will come with the Oktoberfest on the weekend, which will be held as usual in the Plaza de Europa from Friday, August 31 at 7:00 pm, until Sunday, September 2 at 5:00 pm. You can also enjoy the previous performances and, as happened in the previous edition, the performance of the local band “101 Brass Band”.

On this occasion, the Chef Juan Carlos Clemente will be responsible for organizing and coordinating the menus of the chefs who will participate in the Oktoberfest 2018 in Puerto de la Cruz.
In addition to the typical German cuisine, this year the Oktoberfest weekend in Puerto de la Cruz will have all the elements to set the mood for this event, with music, t-shirts, traditional hats, jars and German beer.
As far as beer is concerned, this year special emphasis will be given to the typical Munich beer, such as the Paulaner.
