Thinking about organizing your Oktoberfest any time soon? Its almost that time of the year again. Ticketbud has some advice to run your own Oktoberfest to ensure you have the smoothest experience as possible. Strap on your lederhosen or dust off your dirndl, and let’s get started!
1. Get loose! With a side of water.
The first tip to remember is reminding your attendees that there’s plenty of beer to go around for everyone. They don’t go all in right at the beginning! Make sure you and your attendees have easy access to not only the brew selection, but the water as well. The last thing that attendees desire is waking up the next day with a headache. Don’t stop encouraging guests to get loose though! Just remind them to get loose, with a side of water.
2. What to wear, what to wear.
Secondly, no matter the weather, you’re going to be walking around for awhile. Whether its your traditional lederhosen or dirndl, try and make sure that you stay comfortable for the day! Making sure that your event runs smoothly can be exhausting at times. Also, be sure to make sure you check the weather on a regular basis a couple days before your event.
3. Don’t Try to Be a Hero.
Lastly, when making your beer choices, take into account the people that are attending and remember that some of the beer is brewed to a higher strength. Make sure you have a good variety of choices! Also, don’t try to be a hero. Sure you can out-drink the new friends you just made, but you don’t have to try and prove it to them. If you encourage attendees to arrive early, you and the other guests will have plenty of time to get to work on drinking those massive glasses of beer!
