With fall weather and changing leaves comes Oktoberfest—a traditional German celebration dating back to the 1800s. Here’s a look at the history of the festival and how you can celebrate it at Polly’s Pies’ family restaurant:
History of Oktoberfest
Oktoberfest traditionally begins in the third week of September, lasting for 16 days until the first Sunday of October. The festival began in the year 1810 as a celebration of the wedding of Prince Ludwig to Princess Therese and took place throughout Bavaria. Over the years, days were added and the dates were changed slightly to accommodate holidays and other events. However, the heart of Oktoberfest remained the same. Today, Oktoberfest is celebrated in Germany and throughout the world!
Celebration of Oktoberfest
Oktoberfest proudly stands as one of the largest festivals in the world, incorporating horse races, an agricultural show, musical events, parades, and carnival rides and games. Additionally, a large part of the Oktoberfest celebration is the consumption of food and drink.
