A virtual Octoberfest? Yes, it’s happening. It started at 9 a.m. Pacific time on Saturday, September 5, with Fassanstich (the opening of the first keg).
The fun continues through October. Watch streamed music, dances, and other entertainment. Learn how to cook an authentic Octoberfest menu. Participate in virtual beer and wine tastings. Shop for gifts from Germany and buy food from a German grocery store. Plan your next trip to Germany.
