The Oktoberfest is a 16 day festival held each year in Munich and Bavaria, Germany during late September and early October. It is one of the most famous events in the city and the world's largest fair, with some six million people attending every year. The festival is held on the first sunday of every October. German beer and German Food plays a large role in the festival, like german cake it begins with the Mayor of Munich tapping the keg of beer. The beer is brewed a little bit stronger in both taste and alcohol specialy for Oktoberfest. The festival is held in "Theresienwiese" meaning the feild of Therese. This festival is a big part of German Culture. You can see the german flag flying over the festival. While you are attending the festival u maybe be able to see some celebs like Hasselhoff. You may also hear the ever so popular Ramstein some people may be dancing to it, you could see anything from a 2 step to some Traditional German Dances.

            The first "Oktoberfest" took place in Munich, on October 12, 1810: For the commemoration of their marriage, Crown Prince Ludwig (later King Ludwig I) and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen (namesake of the Theresienwiese festival grounds) organized a great horse race (the marriage took place on October 12; the horse race on October 17 — therefore, there are different dates named as being the first Oktoberfest).
