Septemberfest 2011

Cyprus Mail reports that a (hopefully) annual event is being organized first time this year in Nicosia.  Inspired by the famous Octoberfest beer festival in Munich, Germany and, possibly, by Limassol Wine Festival, it should boost the Nicosia tourism a bit.

Six beer importing and producing companies will headline the festival, while customers will have the opportunity to choose from up to 49 different brands. Cyprus will be represented by its three local producing companies: KEO, Carlsberg and Leon, while 20 kiosks will be set up, with local pubs also participating.

Drinks, food, music, and a traditional in such cases funfair promise a lot of fun.  Septemberfest starts today, Wednesday, September 21st and will continue until the end of the week, Sunday, September 25th.  Entrance tickets are 5 EUR for adults, including free drink.  Children can go in for free, but my guess is that they won’t be served any alcohol.

Hopefully by the next year the organizers will build up a website of some sort.  Until then, there is a Facebook page that you can use to share photos and updates.
