How the Oktoberfest will start in 2022
After a two-year break due to corona (2020, 2021), the Oktoberfest will take place again in 2022. This was announced by Lord Mayor Dieter Reiter at a press conference on April 29, 2022. The traditional Wiesn tapping is planned for Saturday, September 17, 2022 at 12 noon. Then Reiter is to open the world's largest folk festival again with the traditional "O'zapft is!". Other traditional events around the Wiesn are also on the program again: the parade of the Wiesnwirte onto the festival grounds, the large procession of traditional costumes and marksmen on the first Sunday of the Oktoberfest, the stand-up concert under the Bavaria or the firecracker shooting.
