Oktoberfest 2021 events in Sheffield and South Yorkshire: where celebrations are happening and how to get tickets
Oktoberfest is upon us, and these are all the celebrations taking place across South Yorkshire.
The world-famous Oktoberfest takes place every October in Munich and attracts more than six million people every year.
The German festival sees crowds dressed in lederhosen and dirndl skirts, drinking Bavarian beer and singing along to the music of an oompah band.
It is an important part of Bavarian culture that has been held since the year 1810.
Other cities across the world also hold Oktoberfest celebrations that are modelled on the original Munich event.
Sheffielders and people from across South Yorkshire are in luck as you no longer have to head to Germany to enjoy the experience.
These are the Oktoberfest celebrations taking place across the region this month.
