History Event: October 12 1810 Munich. The first official Oktoberfest was the wedding between the Crow Prince Ludwig I of Bavaria and the Princess Therese of Saxony Hilburghausen. The Prince threw a huge party that was open to everyone. Since everyone like it so much, the Prince decided to throw a party every year.
Nowadays the Official Munich Oktoberfest is now attended by more than 6 million people annually, and the concept has been adopted around the globe to over a dozen other countries.
The Oktoberfest was moved from October to September because the warm nights of September were more ideal for throwing large parties. (Also the cooler nights in October allowed for the beer brewing process to begin).
