Oktoberfest began in 1810 as a royal Bavarian wedding party. It has since become the largest secular celebration on earth, attracting millions of participants annually. Eating, drinking, and dancing feature prominently in the festivities. For many, however, the best part of Oktoberfest is the lively, colorful, and entertaining music performed by the Bavarian Oktoberfest oom-pah band. Consisting mainly of polkas, waltzes, and marches, it is the type of music that can be listened to and enjoyed all year long. This ring is comprised of a worldwide collection of websites related to that enduring and versatile ensemble.
