Show Times: Monday – Thursday: 1pm & 5pm Friday – Sunday: 1, 3, 5, & 7pm Beer Tent open Friday – Sunday from noon – 6pm with live entertainment and Oktoberfest biers on tap! Oktoberfest was a popular event when the Heidelberg Castle operated its restaurant at Ober Gatlinburg in the 1980s. The first Oktoberfest was not really a festival at all, but the public celebration of the wedding of Crown Prince Ludwig I and Princess Therese of Bavaria on October 17, 1810. Held on a large meadow named the Theresienwiese in Munich, the party featured a horse race, beer, food, music and dancing.  Anniversary celebrations continues each year, usually starting in late September and ending in the first week of October, with some six million people attending annually. Oktoberfests have been held in Munich for 200 years with the exception of wartime. As immigrants from Germany came to North America, smaller Oktoberfests sprouted up in their communities.
