The Origins of Oktoberfest
In October 1810, in honour of the wedding between Crown Prince Ludwig of Bavaria and Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen, the citizens of Munich were invited to eat, drink and be merry in the fields in front of the city gate to celebrate the happy royal event. The closing ceremony included a horse race and a veritable feast for the whole of Bavaria; the following year the decision to repeat the horse race gave rise to origin of the Oktoberfest tradition. Since then the annual celebration punctuates the life of Munich and Bavaria.
Oktoberfest is the world's largest Volksfest. Held annually in Munich, Bavaria, Germany, it is a 16-18-day folk festival running from mid or late September to the first Sunday in October, with more than six million people from around the world attending the event every year.
