What is Octoberfest and some fun facts:

  •  Oktoberfest is a celebration of German culture, food, and (of course) beer—the Autumn festival held in Munich, Germany, in late September and early October.  The festival originated on October 12, 1810, to celebrate the marriage of the crown prince of Bavaria, who later became King Louis I, to Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen. Now, many bars and restaurants have their own celebration.
  • Oktoberfest is a fun celebration of German heritage.
  • Sice 1950 the festival in Munich only stats after the official gun salute and the mayor shouting O’sapfits is- which means “Its Tapped”.
  • Albert Einstein actually worked at Oktoberfest when he was young, putting up beer tents.
  • More than 6 million people attend Oktoberfest in Munich.
  • Locals don’t call it Oktoberfest. Instead, they call it the “Wies’n”, after the Theresenwiese field where Oktoberfest is held each year.
