Why is Oktoberfest in September??
Remember that Oktoberfest started as the wedding celebration of Crown Prince Ludwig I of Bavaria to Princess Therese in 1810. The town had such a great time that they celebrated the anniversary each year after, adding beer in 1818. In 1835, then King Ludwig, celebrated his silver wedding anniversary festival by adding a parade of people dressed in historic traditional costume. That parade continues to this day. 1872 moved the start of Oktoberfest to September due to bad weather In 1919 the first swing carousel - the Kettenfleiger Kalb - was added. And in 1950 the tradition of opening Oktoberfest with tapping the beer barrel by the Mayor of Munich, with the now famous call "O'zapft is!" started.  
2010 was the 200th Anniversary of Oktoberfest
September 24th is a regular market week with lots of goodies
