ORANGE Ex-Services’ Club’s newest venue will take on a distinctly German flavour this weekend when the Greenhouse will host the inaugural Oktoberfest celebration.

According to the club’s Facebook page, the afternoon “will be a thigh-slapping, schnitzel-crunching and bier-swelling celebration of all things Bavarian”.

The event is restricted to people 18 or older, and costs $55, which covers a stein glass, one drink, traditional German alpine hat and four food stamps to be used at market stalls.

There will also be a selection of local wines and ciders for non-beer drinkers.

The festivities will run from 12pm to 4pm on Saturday.​
