In Germany, Oktoberfest is a folk festival that runs for 16-18 days and begins in mid to late September continuing into the month of October. In the US, Oktoberfest is what we called a good excuse for a fall party with lots of good German foods and beer. Are you throwing an Oktoberfest themed event this fall? Here are some things you should know.
Foods Associated with Oktoberfest
Restaurants as a part of the festivities go all the way back to 1887. Today, the festival consists of 14 large tents and 20 smaller tents, each operated by a different brewery and having its own menu and fun activities.
It’s not really Oktoberfest until you have some beer basted sausages. But beef, chicken, pork, and goulash are all important foods at the festival as well. There are also spätzle (a German egg noodle or dumpling), braised cabbage, sauerkraut, bread, and more.
