Travelling Together is Brighter!
Social travel network, TripTogether.com, visits the top three Oktoberfest celebrations across the globe.

As Autumn approaches across the Northern Hemisphere, adventurers across the globe begin to dream of the much anticipated annual event know as Oktoberfest. From Australia to Japan, Sri Lanka to the United States, Oktoberfest celebrations are an international tradition of fun, friends, and lots of beer. Members of the social travel network, TripTogether.com, come together every year to visit some of the most popular festivals in the world.

Undoubtedly the most popular Oktoberfest celebration takes place in the city of Munich, Germany, the birthplace of the festival. The Munich Beerfest is the world’s largest event, beginning in late September and concluding on the first Sunday of October. The 16 day event is attended annually by more than 6 million people worldwide looking to enjoy over seven million liters of beer. The party kicks off at noon on the first Saturday of the event when the first keg of beer is tapped by the mayor of the city, officially signaling that beer may be served.

Thousands of miles away, in Blumenau, Brazil, one of the largest Oktoberfest celebration outside of Munich takes place. Over 700 thousand travelers gather at the Parque Vila Germânica, or Germanic Village Park, to celebrate German culture with traditional folk dancing, costumes, German cuisine, and beer. TripTogether members who travel to Brazil for the annual celebration note that the real draw to this event is the “National Competition of Chopp in Meter Drinkers” competition that challenges competitors to drink one meter of beer in the least amount of time.

Beginning on the Friday before the Canadian Thanksgiving holiday in October, the twin cities of Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, Canada hold their annual nine day festival based on the beer loving German tradition. With a rich German history, the cities have many inhabitants who take pride in their German heritage. An estimated one million visitors travel the globe to take part in traditional barrel racing, fun runs, parades, beauty pageants, and the Rocktoberfest music concert.

No matter where travelers choose to celebrate, TripTogether promises that a good time will be had. By connecting with the thousands of members across the world who are part of the popular travel network, adventurers are bound to find the perfect location and the perfect companions to share a nice mug of beer with.
