Oktoberfest 2022: Markus Söder advocates for the event to take place after a two-year hiatus

Bavarian Prime Minister Markus Söder believes there is a good chance that Oktoberfest will go ahead this year without a hitch (the event was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to a coronavirus pandemic). The CSU leader expressed this belief on Thursday in his opening speech at the Ludwig-Erhard-Gipfel in Gmund am Tegernsee, a conference attended by leading figures from the world of economy, politics and the media.

Munich mayor says no decision has yet been made on ‘Wiesn’

The city of Munich is expected to decide next week whether Oktoberfest can take place this year after a two-year forced hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, a spokeswoman for Mayor Dieter Reiter (SPD) said Wednesday that it had not yet been determined when exactly that decision would be made.

If authorities give the green light, Oktoberfest 2022 will take place from September 17 to October 3

If the city authorities agree to host the event, the cry of “Ozapft is” will sound for the first time on the Theresienwiese on September 17. The festivities will last until October 3.

In the last two years, Oktoberfest was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. In the event’s more than 200-year history, longer interruptions have only occurred in times of war.
