The Oktoberfest Tradition: From Munich All the Way to the Connecticut Gold Coast
The beery merriment of Oktoberfest has its roots in the early 19th century in—you guessed it—Munich, Germany. In 1810, the citizenry engaged in a multiday celebration of a wedding: the marriage of Ludwig 1, then Crown Prince of Bavaria, and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen, to be exact. The horse racing and general revelry proved to be quite the hit, enough so that the soiree was held the next year as well: thus inaugurating Oktoberfest as an autumn party that these days doesn’t have much at all to do with that foundational royal union.
Munich’s Oktoberfest remains the very biggest anywhere: More than six million attend. Nowadays, of course, you can find Oktoberfests all the world over as general celebrations of Bavarian/German beer and cuisine (and general excuses to have a good time).
