Oktoberfest in den USA

Das Oktoberfest erobert momentan die Welt! Was vor über 200 Jahren in München mit der Hochzeit von Kronprinz Ludwig und Prinzessin Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen begann wird mittlerweile weltweit gefeiert - und die USA sind da keine Ausnahme.

Gerade im Mittleren Westen gibt es viele deutschstämmige Amerikaner, die noch die eine oder andere Tradition hochhalten, aber auch in modernen Metropolen wie New York oder Los Angeles werden Oktoberfeste gefeiert - angefangen mit lokalen Parties in deinem Lieblingspub bis hin zur Steuben Parade in New York mit anschliessendem Oktoberfest nirgends anders als im Central Park.
