Oktoberfest is a 16-18 day festival held each year in Munich, Germany. It is the largest (public) festival in the world, each year attracting over six million visitors (72% Bavarians and 15% tourists).

Traditionally, the festival begins on the first Saturday after September 15th and ends on the first Sunday in October. If the first Sunday in October is October 1st or 2nd, then the festival is extended to October 3rd to include the German Reunification Day.

The festival in Munich consists of lots of beer and food, served in huge tents owned by different breweries, restaurants, and other establishments. There are bands playing traditional Bavarian music, as well as modern bands in the evening hours that play rock, pop, and dance music. To keep with tradition, many visitors wear the traditional clothes: Lederhosen for men; Dirndl dresses for women. Many amusement rides also provide visitors with additional excitement – these include a ferris wheel, roller coaster, and many other rides.
