Some time ago, we posted a blog about local Oktoberfest events happening in Bucks County, PA. Since that time, many local breweries decided on using the term Brewfest over Oktoberfest. Although, the word Oktoberfest has its mystic, don’t be discouraged by the change. Brewfest doesn’t signify less enjoyment; you’ll have the same fun and frolic regardless of the event’s title.
See the local calendar below.
What many people don’t know is, Oktoberfest is the world’s most celebrated beer festival and touring Volkfest (funfair) since 1810. It marks the time when the citizens of Munich were invited to enjoy the festivities to celebrate a royal event. A funfair is equivalent to our carnival, consisting of rides, sideshows, and other amusements. Today, more than 6 million people from around the world celebrate Oktoberfest across Munich, Bavaria, and Germany. For 16- to 18-days, folk festivals run from mid to late September into the first weekend of October.
Well, the time to celebrate beer is almost upon us. If you live in the Bucks County area and you’re looking for local beer festivities, there are several coming up.
