2019 Oktoberfest or Brewfest in Warrington PA
Some time ago, our sister store posted a blog about local Oktoberfest events happening in Bucks County, PA. Since that time, our many local breweries settled on using Brewfest over Oktoberfest. Brewfest doesn’t mean less satisfaction; you’ll have the same enjoyment and merriment regardless of the title.
See the local calendar below.
What many people don’t know is, Oktoberfest is the world’s most celebrated beer festival and touring Volkfest (funfair) since 1810. The term points to a time when Munich citizens were invited to the celebrations of a royal event. If you don’t know, a funfair is equivalent to our carnival, consisting of rides, sideshows, and other amusements. Today, more than 6 million people from around the world celebrate Oktoberfest across Munich, Bavaria, and Germany. For 16- to 18-days, folk festivals run from mid to late September into the first weekend of October.
Well, the time to celebrate beer is almost upon us. If you live in the Bucks County area and you’re looking for local beer festivities, there are several coming up.
