How to Toast Oktoberfest
If St. Patrick's Day is the day when everyone is at least a little Irish, then Oktoberfest is the time when everyone acts just a little German. The namesake celebration in Munich -- which celebrates the 1810 marriage of Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese -- runs from Sept. 19 to Oct. 4, though parties in America tend to run a little longer.
Whether you want to sample traditional German beers, taste local brewers' takes on the malty lagers, dance to a polka band or sample German cuisine, you'll find a growing list of parties on our list of the Best Bets for Oktoberfest. And it's not just about lager: There are family-friendly celebrations with petting zoos, crafts and other surprises.
