The History of Oktoberfest
 
Since it is October – the month of beer, we thought we’d give you a short summary on the history of the legendary Oktoberfest. 
 
Oktoberfest is the world’s largest beer festival, is held annually in Munich, Germany. The 16-day party attracts over 6 million people every year who consume 1.5 million gallons of beer, 200,000 pairs of pork sausage, and 480,000 spit-roasted chickens during the two-week extravaganza. While the event reinforces stereotypical images of beer-loving, meat-loving Germans dressed in dirndls and lederhosen, visitors to the annual event come from all over the world. Oktoberfest is in fact one of Munich’s largest and most profitable tourist attractions
