From October 14 to 23 in the Café de Paris marquee on the Place du Casino in Monte Carlo

After SIX highly successful editions, the Société des Bains de Mer and T.A. Distribution S.A.M., importer of the award-winning premium beers produced by the Bavarian state brewery Weihenstephan, once again organise Monaco's very popular Oktoberfest.

Guests will be able to enjoy many culinary treats in the festively decorated marquee on the terrace of the Café de Paris. As in previous years, numerous German specialties will be directly imported from Bavaria. The chef of the Café de Paris and his crew can count on the active support of the T. A. Distribution team to ensure that favourite dishes continue to feature on the menu. In addition, this is the perfect opportunity to demonstrate that Bavarian cuisine need not always be robust, but can also be refined and innovative.

Opening night :
This will take place on October 14, 2012 at 19:30 in the marquee on the terraces of the Café de Paris and will be highly evocative of its Munich counterpart. The German-Monegasque festivities will be opened in the presence of Prince Albert II de Monaco as well as local and Bavarian personalities with the tapping of the first barrel and the traditional shout “O'Zapft is”.

The group “Echt Guat” led by Michael Stumberger, accompanied by the Bavarian singer Bettina Stadler, will again present a varied repertoire, ensuring a cheerful and festive ambiance on and off the dance floor.

The organisers Tonio Arcaini (President T. A. Distribution S.A.M.) and Stefano Brancato (Director of the Café de Paris) as well as the Weihenstephan team look forward to another successful celebration of this Bavarian tradition.

Join us for the seventh Monte Carlo Oktoberfest from October 14 to 23, 2012 and enjoy the different beers produced by Weihenstephan, the oldest brewery in the world, as well as the natural health drink XAN Wellness rich in the active ingredient xanthohumol, distributed exclusively by TA-XAN AG.

You'll have the time of your life!
