Mark your calendars and ready your bellies on October 7 & 8 because Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila and the German Club will celebrate their 78th Oktoberfest. It’s a milestone for the German Club Manila as they also celebrates 110th years in the Philippines.
Guests are invited to indulge on an endless stretch of sumptuous Bavarian culinary specialties prepared by Sofitel’s seasoned artisans, limitless servings of beer towers and a featured collection of time-honored German traditions plus exciting raffle prizes on the 7th and 8th of October 2016. The Bavarian Sound Express returns by demand to keep everybody on the dance floor in a musical showcase featuring traditional Bavarian Oktoberfest music, German and international party hits.
These and many more were revealed during the Press Preview of the 78th Oktoberfest celebration last September 6 at the Harbor Garden Tent.
The first Oktoberfest in world history took place on October 12, 1810 when Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig, later King Ludwig I of Bavaria, married Princess Therese von Saschen-Hildburghausen (from Sachsen), also a German Princess. Bavaria became a kingdom in 1806, when Napoleon abolished the Holy Roman Empire.
Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila has been holding the Oktoberfest tradition for 7 years while the German Club Manila has been celebrating Oktoberfest for 78 years since 1906.
There were over 7,500 traditional one-liter mug of beer consumed in a span of 2 days and 3,350 number of people that came during Oktoberfest 2015.
Expect a lot of German sausages to be consumed on the festivity like Ring Bratwurst, Cheese Sausage, Cervelat Sausages, MunchnerWeisswurst, Munchner Bratwurst, and Hungarian Sausages.
“Wurst” means sausage and “brat” derives from “brato”, the Old High German word for hacked meat.
