Laoshan district extended invitations to the world's revelers to attend the annual beer festival, which has become a flagship event in Qingdao's calendar and evolved into one of the largest beer festivals in the world.

The carnival offers an ideal destination for drinking beer, savoring gourmet food and enjoying live music and other performances in the summer, according to the organizing committee.

This year, the beer festival has asked attendees to wear masks and display their health codes when entering the venue as part of COVID-19 prevention measures.

Besides the nine distinctive beer tents and eight beer-themed gardens, the Laoshan venue has also added several cabins and outdoor service centers where visitors can enjoy beer, food and performances.
