The Bavarian Folk Festival that Swept the World

October 15, 2018

On October 12, 1810, when Crown Prince Ludwig of Bavaria married Princess Therese, a massive celebration was held outside the Munich city gates to commemorate the royal union, and all the city’s residents were invited. For over two centuries, the people of Bavaria have, with just a few exceptions, carried on the annual celebration that began that day in 1810. Today, the Oktoberfest partying lasts for nearly two-and-a-half-weeks and has expanded beyond the borders of Bavaria to the farthest reaches of the globe. Here in the Riviera Maya, you can enjoy all the trapping of Oktoberfest alongside local residents and travelers from around the world. At Club de la Cerveza, one of our favorite spots to celebrate, lederhosen-clad waiters will be serving up massive German beers and sizzling sausages on October 19, 20, and 21. Stop by for a party you won’t soon forget.
