27th Annual Oktoberfest at Ruttger’s

Posted on: September 24th, 2012 by admin

Many of you are familiar with the fact that Ruttger’s has a strong German heritage. You see it in several different ways around the resort, including the Rüttger wine from German. There is one sign of the Ruttger’s German heritage that stands out more than the others, Oktoberfest. This year, October 19 -21 marks the 27th Annual Oktoberfest, and like past events, it is a  festival that celebrates the German history at Ruttger’s.

Oktoberfest began in 1810 in Germany when Crown Prince Ludwig, later King Ludwig I, married Princess Therese of Saxe-Hidburghausen. The citizens of Munich celebrated the union on the fields in front of the city gates. At the end of the celebration, horse races were held in front of the Royal Family. The horse races were repeated every year (although they are no longer a part of the celebration) and Oktoberfest was born.
