It’s time to party like it’s… 2019!
Are you on lockdown but still want to raise beers at Oktoberfest? Are you simply unable to make it to Munich this year? Have certain events been *gasp!* cancelled? (Say it ain’t so!) Well, we have your solution: Locktoberfest!
Join the Thirsty Swagman crew and thousands of participants from September 18th – October 3rd, 2021 for Locktoberfest—the largest virtual Oktoberfest this side of the Wiesn. To participate, join the Locktoberfest Facebook group today!
This event is totally free and open to anyone who wishes they were actually in Munich. (Which, let’s face it, should be everyone because Munich is amazing.)
Here in the group, participants have found many creative ways to show their love of Oktoberfest and all that is Bavarian through pictures, videos, songs, events, contests, and more.
See how everyone is celebrating Oktoberfest at-home (you won’t believe some of these setups!), find great German recipes, share Oktoberfest stories, showoff your dirndls and lederhosen, and so much more. This is also the best way to stay up-to-date on the status of Oktoberfest 2021 in Munich.
Plus, you can enter our Locktoberfest contest to win awesome prizes. (Locktoberfest 2020’s grand prize was a 3-night Oktoberfest tour package and beer tent reservations!)
Yup, that happened. Oktoberfest 2020 was cancelled due to the virus that shall not be named. This was only the 25th time in the festival’s 210-year history. We may have missed a lot last year, but we still had a hell of a good time celebrating from the safety of our own homes.
We all know nothing in the world comes close to Oktoberfest in Munich. But, sometimes, desperate times call for desperate measures. For the times we just can’t make it to Munich or if ever this blessed event gets cancelled again, We! Are! Ready!
Locktoberfest 2021 will take place from September 18th – October 3rd, 2021 during Oktoberfest’s scheduled timeframe (whether or not the real Oktoberfest in Munich takes place).
Pick up some (kegs) of your favorite Oktoberfest beer, bake some delicious Bavarian soft pretzels, don your dirndls, and get ready to share the experience with Oktoberfest-lovers from around the globe.
The best part? You don’t have to wait until September to join in the fun! Join the Locktoberfest Facebook group today!
