In addition, this festival originated in 1812, to “Celebrate the marriage of the crown prince of Bavaria, who later became King Louis I.” Then, the following year, the “Celebration was combined with a state agricultural fair.” However, in 1818, booths serving food and drink were introduced. Today, Oktoberfest is celebrated throughout the world with beer, floats, costumes, authentic German cuisine, Polka music, dancing, and more!
