About Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest is a Bavarian 'Volksfest', or people's festival for non-German speakers. The 16 to 18-day-long festival is the world's largest beer festival which offers a range of different types, local cuisines and often funfair rides. The festival is spread across 3 weeks in late September and early October, continuing this 200-year tradition. The festival is set to return on the 21st September 2024. Although the event has seen numerous international adaptations, the Bavarian festival is the original and one that shouldn't be missed.

Oktoberfest gets its origins from the wedding of the Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese marriage in 1810. To celebrate this union, a festival was undertaken over the course of a few days including drinking, eating and more. Today, 6 of the largest Bavarian brewers who have played a part in this tradition still operate their own tents for you to try one of their steins. Feeling a bit peckish, then feast away on one of the hundreds of Bratwurst being grilled across the venue or try some of the other local cuisines. If attending you can expect to see the locals clad in the traditional lederhosen and dirndls.
