About the Event

Welcome to the world's largest public festival! That's right, we are talking about Oktoberfest! The gathering has become a world wide extravaganza. With food, attractions and of course beer. However, few really know the reason behind this long lasting celebration. The Oktoberfest tradition started in 1810 to celebrate the October 12th marriage of Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig to the Saxon-Hildburghausen Princess Therese. The citizens of Munich were invited to join in the festivities which were held over five days on the fields in front of the city gates. The main event of the original Oktoberfest was a horse race known as Theresienwiese (“Therese’s green”). The following year the race was combined with a state agricultural fair, and in 1818 booths serving food and drink were introduced. By the late 20th century the booths had developed into large beer halls made of plywood, with interior balconies and bandstands. Each of the Munich brewers erects one of the temporary structures, with seating capacities of some 6,000. But as the event was celebrated annually, and grew year by year, the horse race was lost. However no one really seemed to notice because there were so many other activities to partake in. Now the annual event is known for the  beer, and a place where you can travel back in time and wear the traditional lederhosen and dirndls. Come get lost in the festivities at Clouds as we replicate everything Oktoberfest!
