Munich, the capital of Germany’s Bavaria region, has hosted the original Oktoberfest since 1810. That year, the city put on a public party for the wedding of Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen. In the more than 200 years since, the event has grown to welcome hundreds of thousands of visitors for two weeks of beer guzzling, bratwursts, folkloric dancing, and lederhosen. Like many international traditions, this fun-loving Bavarian festival has spread to all corners of the globe, delighting beer enthusiasts each autumn. From Brazil to Canada and England, these are seven of the best Oktoberfest celebrations outside of Germany.
