How did the tra­di­tion of Ok­to­ber­fest start?

With the royal wedding. Crown Prince Ludwig, later to become King of Bavaria Ludwig I, was married to Princess Therese of Sax­e-Hild­burghausen on October 12, 1810. The citizens of Munich were invited to attend the fes­tiv­i­ties held on the fields in front of the city gates to cel­e­brate the happy royal event. Since then, Oto­ber­fest is held at the same place every year (except for epi­demics and wars).

When is Ok­to­ber­fest held?

In Sep­tem­ber. The world's largest beer festival once took place in October, but was even­tu­al­ly pro­longed and moved ahead to Sep­tem­ber to allow for better weather con­di­tion­s. Today, the last day of the festival is the first Sunday in October.
