The Bavarian Oktoberfest is one of the most visited in Liguria. It takes place at the same time as the original – at the end of September, but the duration is inferior to the German one.

Traditionally, the festival begins with a rite of o’zapft, signifying the opening of the first keg of beer. In addition to the beer “feast of the belly”, guests can enjoy musical concerts, parades and theatrical shows for the whole family. The beginning of September is also interesting for Sanremo, where the Grande Festa della Città is held.
