Oktoberfest is known as the world’s largest Volksfest, which is German for “people’s festival.” It is a beer festival that is often combined with a traveling fair with rides or games. And, of course, plenty of beer and delicious German food.

Oktoberfest has been celebrated since 1810. It is an annual national festival in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. It has been recreated to happen in various locations worldwide. Oktoberfest is attended by over 6 million people each year.
