Over 200 years ago, the first Oktoberfest was held in Munich to celebrate the marriage of Prince Ludwig to Princess Therese. This annual festival once featured barrel rolling, horse racing, and an agricultural fair. Today, Oktoberfest is a celebration of German history, culture, food, and (we see you out there) beer. There are Oktoberfest events held all over the world from the end of September to the beginning of October.
Whether you’re planning on donning lederhosen, playing polka-like oompah music, or just swilling lots and lots of lager, you’ll want to share your Oktoberfest activities via text and on social media. Sadly, there is no dirndl emoji (yet!), but there are quite a few emoji you can use to express your excitement for this fall festival.
