When is Oktoberfest 2021?
The traditional Oktoberfest tapping is scheduled for Saturday, September 18, 2021 at 12 noon. At the moment, preparations for the 187th Wiesn are underway - whether the Oktoberfest, beginning with the traditional "O'zapft is!" can actually take place depends on the further development of the Corona pandemic. Sunday, October 3, German Unity Day (public holiday), is scheduled as the last Wiesn day in 2021.
Following the Corona-related cancellation of Oktoberfest 2020, preparations for Oktoberfest 2021 are currently underway as planned in the Department of Labor and Economic Affairs. Economic Affairs Officer Clemens Baumgärtner says: "Many people are asking: Will there be a Wiesn in 2021? We are definitely planning it and we are hopeful that it can take place this year. We hope that we will actually be able to experience the Wiesn 2021 live. But until then, stay healthy."
