A SENSATIONAL SETTING
Appealing to All the Senses
In creating a festive and cheerful atmosphere, Oktoberfest appeals to all the senses. Smells of delicious German food permeates the air — scents of sauerkraut, schnitzel, sausage, and stroganoff tempt the taste buds with their strong aroma. The buffet is embellished with an assortment of flavors — some sweet, some tangy, some salty, but all delicious! German oompah music gracefully accents the sounds of fellowship: a constant, undulating symphony of cheerful conversations and laughter. Charming floral arrangements and harvest wheat stalks beautifully compliment the rugged textures of the burlap table runners, completing the transformation of a parking area into a picturesque town square.
It is hard to translate the word gemütlichkeit from German into English, but the best translation is "Good Cheer!". This word describes an atmosphere of warmth and friendliness that is created every year during Oktoberfest. In German, the word is used to describe a space or a state of warmth, well-being, social acceptance, and peace. The goal of our Oktoberfest celebration every year is to create a festive atmosphere of gemütlichkeit, through beautiful decorations, delicious food, wonderful conversations, refreshing beverages, and vibrant music.
