What is Oktoberfest
Oktoberfest is a popular time to drink beer, eat food, and celebrate. Originally celebrated in Munich, Germany on October 12th each year, Oktoberfest has since become an international celebration of German culture. The event typically lasts for 16 days with the highlight being the festival’s final day – October 3rd.
The annual festival has grown so large that it now takes place over two weekends with six tents hosting around 20 different breweries each weekend. These tents are also home to wineries where visitors can sample wines from all across Europe as well as other vendors selling cheese wheels or fried pork sausages called “bratwurst.” There are even historical demonstrations including traditional folk dances throughout the grounds!
What is Kielbasa
Kielbasa is a type of smoked sausage that is popular in Eastern Europe and sometimes referred to as Polish bacon. It’s typically made from ground pork and beef, with garlic, salt, pepper and other seasonings like coriander or caraway seeds added for flavor.
