DALLAS (KDAF) — Oktoberfest, while a mainstay in Germany, this festival has made its way into the United States with great popularity due to its great fun, delicious food, and plentiful beer.

Britannica says, “A number of U.S. cities, particularly those with large German American populations, hold Oktoberfests modeled on the original in Munich. These popular celebrations, which feature beer and German food, are an attempt to reproduce the Bavarian sense of gemütlichkeit—cordiality.”

Of course, North Texas will be hosting their fair share, and has already seen one of the best celebrations in the country take place in Addison!
