How did it start?

The original Oktoberfest in October 1810 took place in honor of the marriage between Crown Prince Ludwig of Bavaria and Princess Teresa of Saxony-Hildburghausen. 

For five days, Munich residents are invited to eat, drink, have fun, and parade to drums, teapots, and music, shoot on display boards, and racehorses in the meadows on the outskirts of the city. 

Everything was so good that it was decided to host the competition (and related indulgences) every year. There have always been production cuts (mostly during the war), but this year the Oktoberfest is taking place for the 185th time.
