It’s called October but starts on September

The event started in 1810, took place during one week of October. Now, extended and the starting date changed to September because of warmer weather - more pleasing :-> ... easier to attract more visitors to stay even longer and enjoy the beer (or festival?!) throughout the night (not to mention getting drunk :->)

Oktoberfest is a celebration of Bavarian traditions, so the only beer you’ll find during the festival is brewed within the city limits of Munich. Only beers that fit this criteria are considered Oktoberfest Beers.
