Ein, zwei, Oktoberfest

Cannstatter Volkfest

Oktoberfest begins in Munich on Saturday, as well as in Cincinnati, Denver, Mount Angel, Brooklyn, St. Louis and various other locations. They keep coming throughout the next month.

The photo at the top was taken in Stuttgart six years ago at Cannstatter Volkfest (imagine the Wisconsin State Fair without the agricultural displays but a lot more beer). I’ve written about it before.

The fests in Munich and Stuttgart last as long as a state fair, while those in the United States generally are a weekend affair. Bucket list versus everyday pleasure, I guess. In any event, much preferred to St. Patrick’s Day.

    Alas, my only option is UCBC on Sunday. But it’s still a good one!

    I will point out that Mt. Angel’s Oktoberfest is over already… they celebrated last weekend, the 11th through 14th. No, I did not go; one of these days… but I’d prefer they actually hold it closer to the actual Oktoberfest, as I always seem to check in a weekend too late…

      Gee. I was looking at the 2015 dates. I’d say we should both put that on our calendars, but it will conflict with GABF next year.
