The Beer Tents for the world's largest Folk Festival, the Oktoberfest are set up
The largest folk festival in the world, the Oktoberfest, featuring a beer festival and a traveling funfair is held every year. In 2019, a total of around 6.3 million people visited Oktoberfest. Traditional events around the Wiesn are also on the program again: the parade of the Wiesn innkeepers onto the festival grounds, the big procession of traditional costumes and marksmen on the first Sunday of the Oktoberfest, the stand-up concert under the Bavaria or the firecracker shooting. The Wiesn is held every year on the largest fairground in Munich, on the Theresienwiese.
