Laszlo Zupan, manager of Liberty bar and restaurant next to Wroxham Bridge, said he had always wanted to attend the original Oktoberfest in Munich.
He said the Wroxham Beerfest scheduled for September 23-25 would be a way to attract more visitors at a normally quiet time of year.
Mr Zupan said: “I’ve been in the hospitality business for over 20 years and I’ve always wanted to go to Octoberfest, but I never made it. But that’s not the main reason for going to Octoberfest. ‘event.
“Our restaurant is in the middle of Wroxham and it’s very seasonal.”
Mr Zupan said there would be a pig roast, with a whole pig cooking on a spit outside, a raffle, beer specials, games, German desserts and live music.
“I’ve been trying to throw a beef party for a few years,” he said.
“But this year our head chef John came up with some new menu ideas and among them was the outdoor roast pork.
“We are also trying to get local brewers to set up tents at the event.”
