German Central Foundation


Oktoberfest is celebrated throughout the world. In the United States and Canada there are more than 2,000 major Oktoberfest celebrations annually. The first Steve Bencic Original Greater Cleveland Oktoberfest was held 50 years ago at the beautiful German Central Farm.

Oktoberfest actually began as a royal wedding in Munich, Germany on October 12, 1810. In the years following the wedding, all the appreciative Bavarians in and around Munich held anniversary celebrations until, about ten years later, the celebrations turned into annual Oktoberfests.
