Oktoberfest at Vu’s Sky Bar and Lounge
Celebrate the good times with authentic brews and bites

October is the start of many celebrations and awesome parties, before we hit our most favorite holiday of the year.

October is probably your dad, uncles, bros, or boyfriends favorite month to celebrate the awesome OKTOBERFEST. But do you know where it started and how?

History of Oktoberfest
The history of Oktoberfest is quite fascinating. The first Oktoberfest took place on October 12, 1810 in Munich to celebrate the marriage of Bavaria’s Crown Prince Ludwig to Princess Therese Charlotte Luise of Saxony-Hildburghausen. Ludwig would become King Ludwig I of Bavaria, reigning from 1825 – 1848. Munich’s citizens were invited to partake in the marriage celebration, and the festivities to Oct. 17, with horse races, music and dancing, were held on the expansive meadow in front of the city gates.

Actually, Oktoberfest starts on September..

Unlike how it started back in the 19th century, why Oktoberfest now begins in September instead of October is for the generally milder weather.

The land was renamed Theresienwiese for Therese’s meadow, in honor of the queen. The multi-day festival became an annual event, and Theresienwiese has become the official grounds of Oktoberfest. While in the modern history of Oktoberfest, the festival has generally run for 16 days — there have been years when it has run longer. If the last day of the festival comes before German Unity Day (Oct. 3rd, which is the anniversary date of German reunification in 1990), the festival generally runs through the national holiday.

Oktoberfest in Munich is still the largest public fair in the world, with about 6 million visitors. Besides beer tents there are amusement park rides, both the fast and slower varieties, as well as an impressive array of food. Traditional Bavarian and other German dishes often available at the festival include roast pork, duck, salads and of course baked goods such as pretzels, cakes, plum or fruit tarts, and sweet and savory pies.

The grounds welcome visitors with a grand arch at the main gates. There are also Bavarian bands, dance and other performances in the tents.

Here in Manila, Oktoberfest is also a huge hit since many (both locals and expats) also enjoys overflowing feats. And while you are dreaming of having the authentic Oktoberfest in Germany on your next trip, you can celebrate it here at the heart of Ortigas Manila at Vu's Sky Bar and Lounge.
