The Munich experience is coming to Warrnambool but not in a way it's ever been done before.
Jantoberfest is replacing the traditional beer festival and organiser Jordan Thulborn is excited to be finally holding the event.
"It's more of a relief to be holding this event than any of the past ones I've done," he said. "We came up with the concept of Jantoberfest and if there's ever been a time to do something different it's this year.
"The support from the local community has been great. I'm just super stoked to pull it off."
The night session of Jantoberfest has sold out. But there's still a chance to get your hands on a day session ticket kicking off at 12.30pm.
The two identical sessions include a stein and pretzel on entry and entertainment from Luke Biscan, Michael Ferguson and The Lost Boys and Morning Maxwell. Comedian and hypnotist Andy McGee will be the master of ceremonies for the event.
"People will get the full Munich experience throughout both sessions," Mr Thulborn said.
"While this year won't be the same as being outdoors, Raffertys is the perfect venue for us.
"We'll hopefully be back in October later this year and bigger than what we have been before."
It may be the only year Oktoberfest will be celebrated twice, so this is an event not to miss out on.
Tickets are still available for Saturday's event via Eventbrite and there will be a small number of tickets available on the door.
Grab your lederhosen and dirndl for an afternoon full of entertainment in celebration of the golden drop.
