Oktoberfest is a German tradition that started back in 1810 when the citizens of Munich were invited to attend celebrate the marriage of King Ludwig I to Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen. Horse races in the presence of the royal family marked the close of the event that was celebrated as a festival for all of Bavaria. The decision to repeat the horse races in subsequent years gave rise to the Oktoberfest tradition.

Today, Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany is the largest festival in the world, and will celebrate its 200th anniversary this year from September 18th through October 4th. With some six million people attending each year, it's a key element of Bavarian culture. Munich hotels, just like Flagstaff hotels, really roll out the red carpet for festival attendees. The event has some impressive statistics: 14 giant tents with a seating capacity of 100,000 serve 5.5 million liters of potent 'March beer,' more than 600,000 fried chickens and 84 heads of cattle. The annual commercial value of the whole event is estimated at a minimum of 0.7 billion Euro.

If you're planning a trip to the Flagstaff area, you might want to plan it around the 2010 Oktoberfest where you can enjoy the live entertainment including polka bands, various German beers as well as some great locally-brewed options and delicious food. Flagstaff hotels and all the locals and students are ready to welcome lots of visitors in October.
