Oktoberfest is a 16-day festival celebrating beer held annually in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. Running from late September to the first weekend in October, it is one of the most famous events in Germany and is the world’s largest fair, with more than 6 million people from around the world attending the event every year. The Oktoberfest is an important part of Bavarian culture, having been held since 1810. Other cities across the world also hold Oktoberfest celebrations, modeled after the original Munich event.
In WAYNESVILLE, we won’t have six million people, but we will share in the Gemütlichkeit…Gemütlichkeit means a situation that induces a cheerful mood, peace of mind, with connotation of belonging and social acceptance, coziness and unhurry. Sounds like the perfect atmosphere for a Knights of Columbus event filled with the unity and fraternalism the order professes. We hope you will join us on Saturday September 21, 2013 at Frog Level Brewery with the Mountain Top Polka Band.
