Oktoberfest Offerings and Happenings You Need to Check Out Now

A little bit of history

Oktoberfest or Volksfest (beer festival and travelling funfair) is held annually in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. It is celebrated during the 16 days of October and is now celebrated in conjunction with German Unity Day on October 3. During the event, the main attraction is the consumption of large quantities of high quality German beer. An average of 6 million tourists attend the festival from all over the world. In the Philippines, as part of the commercial strategy of beer manufacturers, Oktoberfest is celebrated in many bars and restaurants all over the country or as drinking festivals sponsored by said manufacturers.

Since its Oktoberfest time once again, the city isn’t lacking in watering holes that offer their own Oktoberfest feasts and events that will surely brighten up this month.

Since the 1980’s the celebration of Oktoberfest in Cagayan de Oro is often looked forward to by lovers of beer and other drinks and food and has become a sort of unwritten tradition for many Kagay-anons. Many beer lovers simply go out to enjoy the beer and gather around the table for fun conversations while others still prefer the loud dancing floors along with their beer. Whatever your celebration choice, always remember these safety clichés: “If you drink, don’t drive, and if you drive, don’t drink” and “Drink responsibly.”
