Oktoberfest began in Bavaria with the Royal Bavarian Wedding of 1810. To celebrate his autumn marriage, King Ludwig called for a state fair in Munich. The festival was dedicated to the fall harvest and, of course, beer – the region’s most famous product.  The celebration was such a success that Ludwig issued a royal decree making every October in Munich a festival time. Oktoberfest has been held annually ever since and has grown into the largest of all German beer festivals.

Snowbird’s Oktoberfest began in 1973 when two men costumed in leather lederhosen, inspired by the towering mountains that reminded them of their homeland, came to Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort to play their accordions and sing in their native German tongue.

Attracting over 60,000 visitors, Oktoberfest has grown to become one of the largest festivals in Utah. Oktoberfest includes Oktoberfest Halle featuring the tastes of Bavaria with entertainment from local and national German bands and yodelers.
