What is Oktoberfest?

Oktoberfest is an annual festival traditionally held in Munich, Germany, over a two-week period that ends on the first Sunday in October. This annual festival first began in October of 1810, originally in celebration of the marriage between the crown prince of Bavaria King Louis I, to Princess Therese von Sachsen. The festival concluded five days later with a horse race. Throughout the ensuing centuries the festival became combined with the race and state agricultural fairs, which introduced the tradition of German beer and food to the celebration.

Today, many cities across the globe often hold their own events modeled after the original Oktoberfest in Munich. We are excited to bring this historic German celebration to Bethany Village, located in Portland, Oregon.

Fun fact: did you know approximately 20% of Oregon residents claim German ancestry?
