This traditional German style outdoor festival promises to be a rousing beer garden party, with all the foamy fun and frivolity that millions of beer lovers across the world have come to enjoy.
Look for great Oktoberfest food: Bratwurst, Bavarian Chicken, Pretzels and more, select arts and crafts vendors and the full lineup of Barnyard retailers just steps away. Of course there is the beer…ahh, what better than a great big stein of Spaten Lager or Spaten special Oktoberfest brew, imported all the way from Germany. Monterey Bay Oktoberfest, as with all Oktoberfests around the world is about quaffing great beer, partying with wonderful, enthusiastic members of the community and celebrating life.
Fun is what the Oktoberfest tradition is all about. The home base of all Oktoberfest celebrations takes place in Munich, Germany each year and spans 16-18 days running from late September to the first weekend in October. It is one of the most famous events in Germany and the world's largest fair, with more than 5 million people attending every year. The Oktoberfest is an important part of Bavarian culture. Other cities across the world also hold Oktoberfest celebrations, modeled after the Munich event. Spaten, creators of the first Oktoberfest beer and one of a small exclusive club of German brewers allowed to serve at the prestigious Munich event, is the beer being served at The Monterey Bay Oktoberfest.
