Oktoberfest is the world’s largest beer festival and travelling funfair. Held annually in Munich, Bavaria, Germany,
it is a 16- to 18-day folk festival running from mid or late September to the first weekend in October, with more than 6 million people from around the world attending the event every year. Locally, it is often called the Wiesn, after the colloquial name for the fairgrounds, Theresa’s Fields -Theresienwiese.
The Oktoberfest is an important part of Bavarian culture, having been held since 1810.
