Between 21 September and 8 October, the Vila Vita Biergarten in Porches gears up to welcome again Oktoberfest, the long-awaited popular beer festival, inspired by the typical festivals from Munich, yet in Algarve-style.
The typical German festival atmosphere is recreated in the genuine 'beer garden' managed by Vila Vita Parc, with tons of fun, a menu full of Bavarian delicacies served at the usual long tables.
The weissbier from Erdinger - one of the most respected German breweries and partner in the event - is one of the stars of the festival served in a very authentic atmosphere to the sound of live music by the well-known traditional music band from Bavaria that has been coming for the past years.
Join us for this great party, admission is free! Book your table in advance as there are different opening times and closing days.

The menu is based on “food-for-beer” and “butcher-to-table” concept, and features an array of tasty new dishes which will delight all true Bavarian gastronomy lovers, as for example the crispy Bavaria blue cheese with potato rösti and blueberries, the home-made cold-smoked salmon salad, the vegetarian Schupfnudeln pasta with roasted vegetables, sautéed with basil and almond pesto, or the ‘giant’ beef chop’ for two with crunchy potato salad with fennel, sweet-chili and nuts.
But the real star of the menu is the extraordinary selection of excellent German beers as well as the Porches Craft Beer - Vila Vita Parc’s very own craft beer - whose latest IPA version(Indian Pale Ale), with a seductive tropical aroma and a zingy, super refreshing after - taste, is one of the latest additions to the gastronomic world of Vila Vita.
