Ukrainian-style Oktoberfest, called Zhovtenfest, will be happening in Kyiv this weekend
Yes, we have our own Oktoberfest. Called Zhovtenfest, it will be happening in Kyiv this weekend, pairing 40 beer brands from local and international breweries with hundreds of people ready to make a good use of the varieties.
Actually, beer will only be part of the attraction at the festival.
Organizers plan to turn it into a family-friendly event with plenty of non-boozie activities for kids, as well as a grocery fair and a concert.
Visitors will also have a chance to try delicious dishes and traditional beer snacks made by local chefs. So, pretzels, beware!
Zhovtenfest. Oct. 12-14. Friday from 4 p.m. Saturday-Sunday from 12 a.m. Khreschatyk. Free
