Oktoberfest is the world’s largest beer celebration in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. It includes massive beer tents, each run by a different Bavarian brewer, as well as amusement rides and activities. The festival attracts over 6 million people every year who consume 1.5 million gallons of beer, 200,000 pairs of pork sausage, and 480,000 spit-roasted chickens during the two-week extravaganza. While the event reinforces stereotypical images of beer-loving, meat-loving Germans dressed in dirndls and lederhosen, visitors come from all over the world.
