Oktoberfest, Blumenau


Every October the small town of Blumenau becomes a little corner of Bavaria near Brazil's Southern Atlantic coast. The festival is a link to the town's 19th century Germanic roots.


Surrounded by coastal forest, Blumenau springs into life for eighteen days as around 700,000 people take part in the celebrations, which include marching bands, folk dancing, parties and the crowning of the Queen of Oktoberfest. Large mugs of Bavarian beer and plates of traditional Germanic cuisine are consumed by locals and travellers alike and a friendly and festive atmosphere reigns.

Thought to be the second biggest beer festival in the world, the 2018 Blumenau Oktoberfest takes place between 3rd and 21st October. The town can be reached as part of the spectacular Serra Verde train journey, taking you through the heart of the magnificent Serra Verde mountains on a panoramic journey from Curitiba to Morretes.
