Event Information:

German-Americans are the single largest ethnicity in the United States, followed by those with Irish and English ancestry. Correspondingly, there are hundreds of large and small Oktoberfest celebrations right across the country. Los Angeles Oktoberfest - Put on your Lederhosen and get your stein ready for the LA Oktoberfest, Sample traditional German Foods, Beers, Wines, Spirits, the hottest buxom beer maidens serving Bavarian brews; Bavarian bands playing lively tunes and leading sing-along's of old time drinking songs.

The original "Oktoberfest" occurred in Munich, on October 12, 1810. For the public commemoration of their marriage that took place five days before, Crown Prince Ludwig (later King Ludwig I) and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen (namesake of the Theresienwiese festival grounds) organized a great horse race. The event was so successful that it was decided to renew it in 1811.

2010 marks the 200th anniversary of Oktoberfest. For the anniversary, there was a horse race in historical costumes on opening day. A so-called "Historische Wiesn" (historical Oktoberfest) took place, starting one day earlier than usual on the southern part of the festival grounds. A specially brewed beer (solely available at the tents of the historical Oktoberfest), horse races, and a museum tent gave visitors an impression of how the event felt a century ago.
