One of Germany's most famous festivities and the world's largest fair, Oktoberfest is a fifteen-day celebration of Bavarian beer. It is an essential part of Bavarian culture. It has taken place annually since 1810. More than six million people come to drink beer and eat chicken legs and pork sausages.
Oktoberfest is the world's largest Volkfest (beer festival and traveling funfair), which is held annually in Munich, Bavaria, and Germany. The time table for this is from mid to late September to the first weekend in October. Oktoberfest beer has a registered trademark by the club of Munich Brewer's, which consists of six breweries.
