So what other countries celebrate this amazing festival?
In Australia Oktoberfest is very popular amongst students in Universities around the country. For the last 45 years ‘The Harmonie German Club’ in Canberra has continued to hold a 3 day Oktoberfest celebration, attracting many thirsty visitors from the area.
1 out of every 3 bottles of beer sold in India are a Kingfisher brand. It is therefore not surprising that Kingfisher, India’s top selling beer, have been hosting “The Great Indian Octoberfest” since 2005. Held every year in Bangalore this 3 day event offers the usual drinking and eating along with competitive games and an automobile show.
Not traditional German folk music at the Great Indian Oktoberfest…
If 18 days of dancing, beer and good food sound like fun to you then get down to the south of Brazil. The biggest Oktoberfest outside of Germany has been celebrated since 1984 with drinking, folk dancing and shooting matches.
The most famous Oktoberfest celebration in Mexico takes place at Club Alemán in Mexico City. Visitors to the party can enjoy traditional German food, keg beer and amusement rides.
Oktoberfest Mexico style!
Every year since 1991 an Oktoberfest celebration has been hosted by the Marco Polo Hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong. The hotel serves traditional South German delicacies such as pork knuckle, sausage, sauerkraut and strudel. Not to forget, of course, the obligatory beer!
Oktoberfest celebrations are held each year in Brasov, Transylvania, with traditional German beers overflowing out of the tap. There is even a ‘Miss Oktoberfest’ contest, a ‘beauty’ contest with a difference: “It doesn’t matter how old you are, how much money you have or if you want to save world and stranded whales. The only requirement is to have the Oktoberfest spirit!”
It’s not about brains or beauty… it’s about beer!
