Description

In this event, which has always been held between September and October, fun, happiness and, as well known, rivers of beer flow together!

Realization

Support required: Canvas minimum measures 50x50

Info

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.

Curiosity

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.

Info

The annual Pride Celebration commemorates the rebellion of LGBT patrons of the Stonewall Inn in New York City’s Greenwich Village in response to a routine police raid on June 27, 1969. Since its modest beginnings, San Francisco Pride has grown to be one of the largest and most well-known Pride events in the world. Pride has come to symbolize several things: the long history of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, everyone’s right to meaningfully and proudly express their sexual and gender identities, and the commitment of LGBT people to fight oppression. From this history of rebellion grew the mission of San Francisco LGBT Pride: “educate the World, celebrate our culture, commemorate our heritage, and liberate our people”.

Curiosity

The colors reflect the diversity of the LGBT community and also represent a symbol of peace. The use of the rainbow flag originated in the San Francisco Bay area is now widespread all over the world.
