Original Oktoberfest in Munich
The Largest Fair in the World
When people from around the world start heading towards Munich in a steady flow, when materials for lederhosen and Dirndl dresses are in short supply, and when even “punks” put on their traditional Bavarian clothing, it can only mean one thing: the Oktoberfest fairgrounds are open! Every year in September, the largest fair in the world takes place on the Theresienwiese fairgrounds.
Beer tents from large to massive, fair booths, brass bands and the – unkindly named – 'celebrity cattle drive' are indispensable parts of the rituals of see-and-be-seen at Oktoberfest. All this results in an unmatched fusion that puts Oktoberfest on a par with Carnival in Venice, the Songkran new year’s festival (literally “astrological passage”) in Bangkok, and Mardi Gras in New Orleans.
