Why is it called Oktoberfest?

The first edition of the Oktoberfest took place in 1810 to celebrate Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen’s wedding. Celebrations started on 12th October and went on until 17th October with a horse race. In the following years the festival was repeated, prolonged and finally re-scheduled in September. Historically, the last weekend of the Oktoberfest always fell in October and this tradition continues today.

This event is sure to be a sell out! Purchase tickets now at www.oktoberfestpalmsprings.com.
