OKTOBERFEST HISTORY
 
Munich's Oktoberfest dates to 1810 and began as the elaborate wedding reception of Prince Ludwig of Bavaria and Saxon Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen. The event was such a success that the fun-loving Bavarians decided to make it a tradition.
 
This is the 189th year of Oktoberfest at the Theresien Wiese in Munich!

Today, the Free State of Bavaria  (Freistaat Bayern), with an area of 70,553 kmē (27,241 square miles) and 12.4 million inhabitants, forms the southernmost state of today's Germany. Its capital is Munich.

OKTOBERFESTS
2012
U.S.A. Oktoberfests started to develop after WWII
as goodwill events held by German-Americans.
Since then, this event has spilled out of
German-American communities to
major cities everywhere.
Today in the U.S.
 
Oktoberfest is not a holiday;
it is two months of holdays!
