Shanghai’s booziest festival is headed to town. Both the Mixnanza Cocktail Festival and Beernanza Beer Festival will take place at the historical Okura Garden Park from May 10-12. Both festivals will take place simultaneously, so whether you’re a beer person or a cocktail person, there’s something to suit all tastes.
Mixnanza Cocktail Festival
If you’re a cocktail aficionado – or just someone who likes to imbibe – then Mixnanza is for you. During this year’s fest, some of Shanghai’s best bartenders will be shaking and stirring over 100 different types of drinks for festivalgoers.
Beernanza Beer Festival
If beer is more your flavor, Beernanza Beer Festival will also take place from May 10-12 at Okura Garden Park. This is Shanghai’s biggest beer festival, with more than 150 different craft and premium beers from China and around the world. Boxing Cat Brewery will be on site to launch some new brews.
There will also be Bear Olympics performances, which is bound to take the boozy fun to the next level. Giant stuffed bears will be running around to cheers everyone and take hilarious photos with you throughout the weekend. They will also host the epic Bear Olympics on stage, which includes a bunch of drinking and eating contests.
The three-day festival will take place outdoors in the gorgeous park. Drinks aside, there will be 45 live musicians and DJs performing on three different stages all weekend long. Expect everything from tropical Latino music, hip-hop, reggae, EDM and more. Expect lots of prizes, drinking contests and an open-air karaoke area (because there’s no better combination than alcohol and singing in public).
Grab a Cocktail Passport or Beer Passport and win a free drink after getting three stamps at the different booths. There will also be multiple raffle boxes and spinning wheels giving people the chance to win drinks and bar-related prizes.
