Oktoberfest — A Celebration of Brewing in Minnesota

Oktoberfest is an annual festival hosted in Munich, Germany that occurs over a 17-day period this year, ending the first Sunday in October. The festival is an international celebration of German food and beer to pay homage to the Bavarian sense of höflichkeit —cordiality.
