Grab a bratwurst and a mug of Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier—and bookmark these Oktoberfest events in Bangkok this September and October.

Oktoberfest is a big deal. After all, it’s the largest folk festival in the world. People are out and about having the time of their lives. Be sure to call up your friends as some things in Germany are better with company, such as sharing portions of Bavarian food and an abundance of beer.

Even if you’re in Bangkok, you don’t need to book a ticket to the Vaterland to enjoy Oktoberfest. These Oktoberfest events in town will certainly do the job.
