And, according to the press, there will still be another group, which is under negotiation - and will be used as a surprise at the opening.

The program will feature four bands per night of the party performing at the Eisenbah Biergarten pavilion, always from 18pm to 23pm.

In addition, the public will be able to effectively participate in the party broadcast live, through a screen installed at the live

The initiative began to be thought of shortly after the Drive Thru Solidarity Action, which was held last June, at Parque Vila Germanica.

The project is carried out by Tom Natural Produções, in partnership with Associação Pequeno Músico de Blumenau and Canaparro Produções.

It is worth remembering that the conventional Oktoberfest had its cancellation announced, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, on July 27th. The in-person event is celebrated as the largest Germanic festivity in the Americas.

traditional festivity

The Oktoberfest in Blumenau is famous for moving the city, celebrating traditional German culture, as the place is a large colony of Germanic origin. 

The event, which for more than 35 years has attracted tourists and locals alike, is world famous for its grandeur: long parades usually enliven the revelers, who celebrate to the sound of live music and a lot of beer and typical cuisine.

Other activities that are usually carried out at Oktober in person are: the Beer Contest in Metro and the engaging “Dança da Marreca”.
But what will be guaranteed for the event? online, without a doubt, will be the gastronomy. Among the most popular typical dishes are: Kassler (pork chop, accompanied by white and red sausage, puree and sauerkraut), ice beans (pork knee with puree, sauerkraut and white and red sausages) and Roast Mallard (dolphin served with stuffing, rice, red cabbage and mashed potatoes and apples). And, according to those who appreciate the delicacies, all this goes very well with cold draft beer.
