Saint Paul Oktoberfest
The Saint Paul Oktoberfest celebrates the proud Germanic heritage of Saint Paul’s North End neighborhood and surrounding neighborhoods. Germans are the largest single immigrant group in Minnesota and many parishes and schools in the area were founded by German immigrants.
Oktoberfest began in Protected content the wedding feast of Princess Therese and the Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig . The feast was held in a meadow adjacent to Munich. As part of the entertainment, a horse race was staged for 40,000 enthusiasts from all over Bavaria. The party lasted five days. Such was the success of this party that to this day Germans around the world continue to commemorate it each October. Oktoberfest is celebrated for two purposes: First to give thanks to the Lord for the past year’s crops and other blessings. Second to share in the joy of the occasion with the family in the spirit of true love.
