Do not miss the chance to make an artwork on Oktoberfest: the folklore event par excellence! In this event, which has always been held between September and October, fun, happiness and, as well known, rivers of beer flow together! This year is the 218th edition and it is essential to specify that Oktoberfest is much more than a simple jug of beer, in fact, it is a celebration of popular culture, ancient traditions, entertainment, and music!

Oktoberfest takes place every year in Munich since 1810 as a celebration of the wedding between the Prince of Bavaria Ludwig I and Teresa of Saxony, becoming more and more over the years the most anticipated event of the year. Only the six traditional breweries in Munich are allowed to serve beer in the awnings. Each tent is characterized by its own Maß, the famous one-liter jug present in thousands of versions. The Oktoberfest has always been located at the Theresienwiese, a green area that occupies about 104 hectares and offers 100,000 seats.
Behind the fame of the Munich Oktoberfest, there is a question of necessity. South of Bavaria there was once a severe shortage of drinking water, and so, to avoid cholera, plague and other such diseases, the locals quenched their thirst with beer, safer and more hygienic and maybe even tastier. The famous American star Paris Hilton appeared in 2006 to promote a brand of wine in cans, without having made any kind of agreements with the Oktoberfest organization. After some considerable and excessive public outrage, Paris was banned from the festival.
