As the largest folk festival of its kind, Oktoberfest has inspired many similar festivals across Europe and America. Many people from across the world travel to Munich, Germany in order to participate in this beer, sausage, and pretzel-filled celebration. Luckily, you don’t have to go to Germany to host your own community beer festival full of fun activities.
This 16-day mega-festival traditionally runs from the last week in September through the first week in October, but you can pick any beautiful fall weekend to honor this celebration. No matter how big or small your event is going to be, there are some necessary essentials you’ll need to make your party the wurst party of the year.
