But first, get to know what Oktoberfest is all about
Oktoberfest is a two-week festival held yearly in Munich, Germany, from late September until early October. Historically, Germans celebrate this day to mark the marriage of Crown Prince Ludwig to Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen. But as years passed, this celebration has evolved to a wide celebration every October involving drinking tons of beers, more partying, and music appreciation that is now celebrated almost all around the globe, especially here in the US. It is usually celebrated in different states in America on the same day they do it in Germany.
Must-haves for an Oktoberfest party
To recreate an Oktoberfest vibe, these are the essentials you need:
- The Beer! Do not forget beers. Yes, the beers and the beer glass! You can buy the best german brews in supermarkets or online shops like Hampers.com.
- The Food! Don’t forget to look up recipes because the best Oktoberfest roast staples are marinated in beer too! There is a lot of food you need, but if you are too lazy or do not have time to cook. Order all these foods at What A Crock!
- The Vibe! Play the music and start listening to oompah right away! Fugoo speakers are the best partner for this, rain or shine!
