Deutsches Haus Oktoberfest

Back in 1810 Bavaria, who would have thought that a public celebration of a crown prince marrying a princess would become one of the most famous parties in the world? Oktoberfest is a 16 day festival based in Munich, Germany, but celebrated all over the world. But here we are.

To no one's surprise, a multi-day celebration based on beer and food is quite popular in New Orleans, helped in no small part by the significant German subculture brought by the many immigrants who moved here in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Technically, this year's Oktoberfest runs from September 19 until October 4, but since the name of the event itself has "Oktober" in it, many places celebrate all October long. And why not? More beer and schnitzel for all.

Please note: These spots are arranged by neighborhood, not by ranking.
