If you love German beer, food and culture, and will be in San Francisco from the 23rd to the 25th of September, then you won’t want to miss Oktoberfest by the Bay. Oktoberfest is a big deal in Germany, and this Event brings this German tradition to San Francisco!
This renowned German festival was founded 61 years before Germany was officially a country, at the tail end of the Holy Roman Empire’s rule over Europe. Prince Ludwig’s wedding to Princess Therese of Saxony was held in Munich in early October of 1810. The Prince welcomed the citizens of the city to attend. The closing of that original celebration was earmarked by horse races, which were brought back in the years following the original event. It was from this that Oktoberfest became a German institution.
Oktoberfest by the Bay, an abbreviated rendering of the original 16-day festival, takes place over 3 days in late September on Pier 48. This Event in San Francisco features authentic German food, beer, music, and even traditional dress. The Event is held by the United German American Societies, and 2016 marks 127 years of the organization advancing German culture.
On the second day of Oktoberfest by the Bay, the festival will hold two sessions. The first will be from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The second will start at 6 p.m. and go until midnight. Two sessions became necessary in order to accommodate the large numbers of people who wanted to attend. Along with all the German food and beer you can devour, Bavarian music, courtesy of 2 bands, will help set the mood.
