Fact or Fiction: Oktoberfest in Germany is in October.
That is FACT & FICTION! Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany is traditionally celebrated mostly in the month of September. This year the first keg was tapped September 19th, 2015 and is scheduled to "run dry" the first weekend in October.
According to their official website Half-Time Report;
"Despite the cool weather, 3 million guests found their way to the Oktoberfest. Most of them from Munich, also guests from America, Canada, Great Britain, Australia and New Zealand, Japan, Switzerland and Italy made the trip to Bavaria.
Compared to 3.3 million visitors in 2014, the number of guest went slightly down, which means that it was easier to find a seat at one of the tables in the tents."
