Why is it celebrated
Oktoberfest began as a wedding celebration more than 200 years ago when the heir to the Bavarian throne Ludwig married Princess Teresa of Saxony-Hildburghausen on October 12, 1810. The wedding was celebrated with many days of drinking, parties, and horse racing.
Oktoberfest is often associated with beer, but festival traditions are much more than that. While the beer tents naturally provide drinks, they only play traditional Bavarian music.
KITCHENER – Kitchener – Waterloo Oktoberfest will run over three weekends in 2021, starting with the official opening ceremony on September 24.
"The safety and well-being of our community, our staff, and volunteers is our top priority," the statement said. "In close collaboration with the Waterloo Public Health Unit, the community, and the region, we are pleased to offer exciting programs to safely enjoy this community's traditions in practice and in private.
This year's festival also includes the Oktoberfest WunderWagon Kitchener-Waterloo, which brings "the spirit of Oktoberfest" to residential streets, local restaurants, and other community centers in September and October.
