On a budget but still want to get dressed up? No problem! Here are some simple outfit ideas:

Lederhosen: It is Oktoberfest-proven that when you wear lederhosen, your bier tastes better and the frauleins will find you irresistible. This ensemble is very easy to put together on your own. Here’s what you’ll need:
– Shorts (leather if you can find them, but it isn’t necessary)
– Pair of suspenders
– An open-necked shirt or t-shirt of your choice
– Knee high socks
– Brown or black dress shoes or boots
– Hat with feather (available for sale at Oktoberfest)

Dirndl: This traditional dress is German-engineered to highlight every woman’s assets. You can start from scratch or use a dress you already have and turn it into a dirndl. Here’s what you’ll need:
– Peasant dress or a flowing skirt and blouse combination
– Bra-less Corset
– Apron
– Knee high socks
– Black shoes
– Ribbon

There you have it, wear any version of Lederhosen or Dirndl to Oktoberfest and you’ll receive a ballot to win a Banff Craft Beer Festival prize pack including 2 nights accommodation at a Banff Lodging Co. hotel, VIP passes to the event, and tokens!
