Sheraton is always “connecting people” with their different human values, traditions and customs. “We believe that events like the Oktoberfest will bring German & Georgian society closer. Beer festivals are not rare in Georgia. However, the "Oktoberfest" is totally Bavarian, and will show the Georgian society how the Bavarians celebrate this yearly festival. Original Food - not only sausages - decoration with garlands and a tent in white and blue, national Bavarian dresses (Lederhosen and Dirndl) are part of every day’s evening events. One of the highlights will be the 7-man band “BlechSaitn Musi” which will arrive on time for the opening ceremony on Saturday at 4pm. During the traditional “Fruhschoppen” on Sunday morning, a Jam-Session will be held by the folk band and the well-known Georgian “Urmuli“.”
One more highlight of the event will be the Raffle! Sheraton Hotels and Lufthansa German Airlines are giving all Oktoberfest visitors the great chance to win an unforgettable trip for two on a weekend to Munich, the Bavarian capital. Raffle will take place on October 3rd at 9:30 pm.
