Addison Celebrates 25 Years of Oktoberfest

The first Oktoberfest was not really a festival at all, but the public celebration of the wedding of Crown Prince Luitpold I and Princess Theressa of Bavaria on October 17, 1810. Held on a large meadow in Munich, the party featured a horse race, beer, food, music and dancing. Anniversary celebrations continued each year, usually starting in late September and ending in the first week of October. Oktoberfests have been held in Munich for almost 200 years (with the exception of wartime). As immigrants from Germany came to North America, smaller Oktoberfests sprouted up in their communities.

Can you guess what city battles Munich for the largest Oktoberfest? Cincinnati! In Cincinnati, close to 700,000 people jam the streets of “Zinzinnati” during late September, jostling to music from seven large entertainment stages, while dozens of food vendors serve bratwurst, sauerkraut and thousands of gallons of beer.

These giant fests set the stage for similar Oktoberfests across North America like the one held in Addison, Texas, which is celebrating its 25th Anniversary of Oktoberfest! Four day festival include the famed German polka band, the Munich Evergreens along with Grammy-award winning legends Brave Combo, schnitzel, folk dancing, sing-alongs and kid’s entertainment! Enjoy fun contests such as dachshund races, bier barrel bowling, a yodeling contest and a German spelling bee!  Wanting a more intimate experience? Dine at the Brau Haus, with full service Bavarian dining and an exclusive menu for the $45 available Thursday through Saturday.  You can also enjoy the Teutonic tradition of kuchen and kaffee at the Oktoberfest’s new bakery!

Guten Appetit!
