Will the Oktoberfest 2021 take place?
No, the Oktoberfest 2021 has been canceled due to the pandemic.
Since it was announced that the 187. Munich Oktoberfest that was set to take place in 2020 will be postponed to 2021, Oktoberfest enthusiasts wonder if it may be postponed again. While the head of the Oktoberfest, Clemens Baumgärtner, said this summer that the decision whether to begin the construction of the Oktoberfest can be made as late as early July, the city's Mayor, Dieter Reiter, already announced to make the decision again in April, which would be very early.
Therefore, we wouldn't be surprised if the decision will actually be postponed if the officials see a silver lining in April. Until then, preparations will continue as usual. The first tent even started accepting reservations for the Oktoberfest 2021 in September.
