O’ZAPFT IS’! We celebrated the coming of Fall and crisp weather with our annual Oktoberfest celebration yesterday!
Although it’s called Oktoberfest, many people don’t realize that the actual event in Germany is held in September. That may seem confusing, however, it now starts in September because its final day has a fixed spot on the calendar and, usually, September has warmer weather so it’s organizers have worked backwards to capitalize on that. Also, by scheduling it in late September, the last day of the festival, held in Munich, always falls on the first Sunday of October.
Although last year we celebrated our Oktoberfest a month later, we wanted to be more “in tune” with the actual event. We always celebrate our Oktoberfest with traditional dishes from Germany such as homemade perogies, bratwurst, cabbage casseroles, and of course plenty of beer!
Below are a few photos of the event.
