Oktoberfest is a popular German tradition that has become an increasingly more popular fall party theme all over the world. The real Oktoberfest is held each year in the beginning of October in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. It lasts for two weeks and hosts around six million people each year.
You can host your own Oktoberfest party, whether it’s a small family get-together, a block party, or a huge festival. ShindigZ has tons of Oktoberfest tips to get you started.
Once you’ve decided to host an Oktoberfest party, decide on your guest list and send out invitations. Be sure to encourage guests to come dressed in traditional German costumes or fun party clothes.
Get creative with your invitations! Make invitations in the shape of beer steins, fall leaves, yodeler hats, or German flags. The possibilities are limitless.
Our favorite invitation idea is to write your party information on a small or medium roll piece of paper. Roll it up and place it in paper stein centerpieces. Hand deliver your invitations to each guest for a personal touch and a favor that will help them anticipate the party!
