Oktoberfest is the world's largest folklore festival that takes place every year in Kitchener. The first Oktoberfest of its kind was the celebration of the wedding of the heirs to the Bavarian.

In a press release on Tuesday, festival officials said the 53rd annual festival would be held over three weekends from September 24 to October 11.
"The safety and well-being of our community, our staff, and volunteers is our top priority," the statement said. "In close collaboration with the Kitchener Public Health Unit, the community, and the region, we are pleased to offer exciting programs to safely enjoy this community's traditions in practice and in private."
On the first celebration, festival-goers enjoy traditions such as tree climbing competitions, sack races, and geese hunting. Years later, merry-go-rounds, swings, and beer stalls hit the crowds – the start of Oktoberfest as we know it today!
Today Oktoberfest is a 16-day festival that attracts millions of people from all over the world! More than 6 million people visited Oktoberfest in 2019 and drank more than 60,000 hectoliters of beer.
