Your Oktoberfest stories

FIRST DRINKS: Me at my first Munich Oktoberfest in 2006.
Certainly not the last.

If you’ve been there you know how crazy it can get.

The fanciful costumes, the roar of the tents, and everywhere that happy/crazy feeling that makes you feel like you have truly arrived in beer (and party) heaven.
If you’ve ever been to the Munich Oktoberfest, I bet you’ve got some stories to tell.

Did you make a bunch of Bavarian friends, find true love for a day or loose your set of false teeth? Maybe you fell asleep on the train home and almost ended up in France (as I did once, doh!) Whatever your story is, this is the place to share it. You can also upload a photo you took at Oktoberfest.

I also want to hear about Oktoberfests, and similar festivals in other parts of the world. It has become a worldwide phenomenon after all! Revelers flock in their hundreds of thousands to Oktoberfests from Blumenau in Brazil to Taybeh in Palestine.
Ever been to one? It would be amazing to hear all about what they’re like.
You’ll be able to read and comment on other visitors’ Oktoberfest tales at the bottom of this page (when some arrive).
So go ahead! You don't have to sign up or subscribe to anything, just write down your story and click it off onto the Web.
