The small (Green) Oktoberfest will take place from October 23 to 31 in Strossmayer Square

After the successful first edition, Green River Fest moves from the banks of the Sava River to the very heart of the city – Josip Juraj Strossmayer Square in a slightly modified edition. The small Oktoberfest will bring a breath of the world's biggest festivity to the very center of the metropolis. It will take place from October 23 to 31, and will bring together eight local craft breweries, Oktoberfest flavors and a colorful array of autumn cocktails.

Small Oktoberfest uses already existing materials and props from Green River Fest

The inspiration for the transformation was given to them by the very idea of Green River Fest and reuse as guidelines for the future. Already existing materials and props will shine in a new purpose, building a whole new story and tradition. Thus, the solar beach will be transformed into a solar beer bar that will host local craft breweries from all over Croatia, and the cult Babinjak becomes a place for chill and cultural uplift with the recommended distance.
