Inspired by the globally-celebrated beer festival, Oktoberfest, Highpoint Shopping Centre will this month debut ‘Oktoberwest’: a festival celebrating Melburnians’ love for chicken and beer.

Melbourne-based chicken connoisseurs are invited to attempt Oktoberwest’s headline event: the ultimate ‘chicken bucket list challenge’, featuring a series of Highpoint’s dining retailers serving up a sample of their signature chicken dish. For challengers who tick off each of the below, they will go into the draw to win a series of Highpoint gift vouchers.

The Oktoberwest chicken bucket list challenge line-up includes: Boneless fried chicken pieces by Gami Chicken and Beer; Chicken sliders by Grill’d; Southern fried chicken sliders by Highpoint Hotel; Chicken wings by Strike Bowling; Mini chicken schnitzels and parmigianas by The Bavarian and Mexican chicken crepes by The Pancake Parlour.

In addition to Oktoberwest’s chicken festivities, German beer sampling, giant pretzel giveaways, live traditional German music, a fun keg tap, and activities for the kids, including a balloon modeller, face painter and juggler, will be available throughout the day.
