Early OktoberfestHeld annually in the fall, Oktoberfest is a world famous German folk festival. It is considered one of the world’s most fun-filled celebrations.

For sixteen days, millions of visitors from all over the world enjoy parades, amusements, shows and, of course, lots of authentic German food like sausages, potato salad and apple strudel.

Oktoberfest is best known for the free-flowing, hearty German beer. The celebration officially begins each year when the Lord Mayor of the city taps the first keg – tapping of the first keg symbolizes the celebration of the season’s first brew.

The first Oktoberfest was held nearly 200 years ago in celebration of Crown Prince Ludwig’s marriage to Princess Therese. Since then, Oktoberfest has grown in size and stature and is know world-wide for its friendly & festive atmosphere.
