TORROX is well known for its large German population who are planning to celebrate Oktoberfest in style. The festival, to be held from Friday September 16 to Sunday 18 September18, will aim to blend German and Spanish cultures.
Axarquian craft beer will be promoted throughout the festival, with entertainment including live music on offer. The festival will have at least 60 different stands with different foods, drinks and activities at each.
Mayor Oscar Medina said: “Torrox faces two important developments: the first is to situate celebrations in the heart of the German community, in Avenida Esperanto, near Urbanizacion Bau Hoffman which became home to thousands of German citizens in the 1970s. The second is the creation of a space for craft beer, a quality sector with deep roots in the Axarquia,”
