22nd Oktoberfest in Calpe has begun

From 1st till 12th of October Calpe is celebrating its 22nd Oktoberfest organized by the Carnival Club Calpe. The also called "Fiesta Alemana de la Cerveza" in Calpe is the most famous festival of that kind, celebrated in Spain.

VictoriaCars - Car Hire Alicante Airport is pleased to announce once again the traditional celebration of the Oktoberfest in the Province of Alicante, more precisely in Calpe. This year, the tent will space over 15,000 square meters and will be located centrally and easy to access behind Calpe's Tennis Club with the possibility to park for free.

VictoriaCars itself has its head office in Calpe and recommends to all clients and holidaymakers not to miss this great multi-cultural event on the Costa Blanca. The Oktoberfest in Calpe will take place from the 1st to the 12th of October and will be open every day from 18:00pm without admission fees. All clients and Calpe visitors are invited to taste the German delicacies like the tasty sausages Nuremberg, Frankfurt or Krakauer, the typical salads, the knuckles of pork and, of course, the original "Paulaner" beer from Munich.

But besides being only a gourmet evening, the Oktoberfest visitors will also enjoy folklore with performances of the "Original Steinsberger Musikanten" which will give a concert every day and put the guests into good humour.

This festival has its origin in Munich with the celebration the engagement of Prince Ludwig, later known as Ludwig I, with the Princess Theresa of Saxony-Hildburghausen. On 12 of October 1810, all citizens of Munich were invited to the wedding which took place on a meadow in the city. Since then, the conclusion was repeated year after year on the Theresienwiese when circumstances have allowed it. Munich's Oktoberfest is visited every year by year by more than 6 millions of visitors and is considered as one of the biggest folk festivals on the world.

Calpe's Oktoberfest tradition started in 1988, this is why the German beer festival has been established as unmissable event of this kind on the Spanish territory. And while it is obvious that the magnitude of Calpe's Oktoberfest is quite far from the one in Munich, the Oktoberfest in Calpe is at least accompanied with all Bavarian elements to spend a few really special days.
