Oktoberfest - Warm-up

28 August 2008

As we approach October, the marzen-style beers start to flow and the celebration begins. Locally we all know Oktoberfest for the Lion brewery celebration, but I thought you'd like a little peek at the German celebration as a warm-up for our Oktoberfest. I'll pass on a few tidbits of the next few days.

Today let's talk timing. For all the hoopla associated with Oktoberfest, in Munich the celebration is mostly over by October. Here's their schedule...

Sept. 20, 10:45 a.m.: Grand Entry of the Oktoberfest Landlords and Breweries.
Sept. 20, noon: The famous "O'ZAPFT IS" (it's been tapped): Munich mayor taps the first keg of beer."It's tapped!"
Sept. 21, 10 a.m.: Oktoberfest Costume and Riflemen's Parade.
Sept. 28, 11 a.m.: Oktoberfest bands: 400 musicians at at the foot of the Bavaria statue.

October 5th -Closing ceremonies
